Quentin Tarantino has teased that his retirement might be coming soon and now he says he only has two films left…
Quentin Tarantino’s filmmaking days are nearly finished.
The prolific and critically acclaimed writer/director behind ‘Pulp Fiction’, ‘Reservoir Dogs’ and ‘Django Unchained’ says he’s officially wrapping up his directing career after two more movies.
“Drop the mic. Boom. Tell everybody, ‘Match that shit,'” Tarantino told a raucous crowd in San Diego on Friday.
Tarantino has long teased that his film career might come to an end after he reaches 10 total movies on his directorial resume and it seems he’s finalized that number before retiring from the industry.
Of course, Tarantino has also said in the past that his retirement doesn’t exclude the possibility that he could work in television or some other medium, but as far as his film career goes, 10 movies would be the end.
Right now, Tarantino has several ideas brewing for his next film but most recently he teased a Bonnie and Clyde style tale taking place in Australia during the 1930’s.
Tarantino has been applauded throughout his career for making movies his way and never compromising his vision. From his ultra violent crime noir films to his recent work in the Old West genre, Tarantino has always been one of the most creative storytellers of this or any generation in the movie industry.
Tarantino has won several awards during his career and he’s not lost on what he’s meant to the industry while his films have gained a cult like following with fans and critics over the years.
“Hopefully, the way I define success when I finish my career is that I’m considered one of the greatest filmmakers that ever lived. And going further, a great artist, not just filmmaker,” Tarantino said.
Tarantino didn’t have any update on when his next movie might start to take form, but he has consistently released a film every three years since ‘Inglorious Basterds’ came out in 2009. By that math, Tarantino’s next project should be coming around 2018 but of course there’s no word on whether or not he’s planning on keeping to that time scheduled for his penultimate film.
