The next two will be the final two for Quentin Tarantino. The legendary director announced on Nov. 3 that the rumors are in fact true. So, what are his reasons for wrapping up?
Quentin Tarantino, 53, will make ten movies, and that’s it. After that, here’s what he’ll do:
“Drop the mic. Boom. Tell everybody, ‘Match that sh-t,'” he said to the audiences at Adobe Max, a conference in San Diego. “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.”
Right now, he’s working on a non-fiction project that “could be a book, a documentary or a five-part podcast,” he admitted, about a story he’s ben studying for four years set in 1970. His next film though will be set in 1930s Australian, and it will be some sort of Bonnie and Clyde type story.
This isn’t the first the director has spoken about the end of his movie making career.
“I’m planning on stopping at 10. So it’ll be two more. Even if at 75, if I have this other story to tell, it would still kind of work because that would make those 10,” he said in July at a discussion at the Jerusalem Cinematheque, according to our sister publication, Variety. “They would be there and that would be that. But the one he did when he was an old fu–ing man, that geriatric one exists completely on its own in the old folks’ home and is never put in the same shelf next to the other 10. So it doesn’t contaminate the other 10.”
Are you bummed that Tarantino is on his way out?
