Tarantino to Retire?

Tarantino1.jpg

Quentin Tarantino has stated that he may retire after forthcoming movie The Hateful Eight.

In a Q&A for the buyers at the American Film Market he said "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 like that I will leave a ten-film filmography, and so I’ve got two more to go after this."

He added a disclaimer though, saying, "It’s not etched in stone, but that is the plan. 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."

The numbers don't quite add up - as, counting Kill Bill as one film, The Hateful Eight will be his tenth project as director; however, discounting his debut My Best Friend's Birthday, and his segment in Four Rooms, it's back down to eight. But, either way - it seems he's thinking about entering the pipe and slipper years quite soon.

Tarantino recently announced the casting for The Hateful Eight, with Channing Tatum featuring alongside regulars Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Madsen; shooting is set to begin in early 2015 with a possible release date later in the year.
