Quentin Tarantino Expected To Retire After His 10th Film

Could we be approaching the end of the Quentin Tarantino era? According to a recent speaking engagement at the American Film Market, the famed director revealed that he plans to retire after releasing his tenth film. Here’s what he was quoted as saying:

“If I get to the tenth, do a good job and don’t screw it up, well that sounds like a good way to end the old career. If, later on, I come across a good movie, I won’t not do it just because I said I wouldn’t. But ten and done, leaving them wanting more, that sounds right.”

Tarantino — who’s known for classics like 1992’s Reservoir Dogs, 2003’s Kill Bill, and the more recent Django Unchained from 2012 — went on to add:

“I don’t believe you should stay on stage until people are begging you to get off. I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more. I do think directing is a young man’s game and I like the idea of an umbilical cord connection from my first to my last movie. I’m not trying to ridicule anyone who thinks differently, but I want to go out while I’m still hard… I like that I will leave a ten-film filmography, and so I’ve got two more to go after this.”

As long as that 10th film is Kill Bill Vol. 3, we can respect the move. Let us know what you guys think by hitting us up on Twitter and Facebook.
