“I think when it comes to theatrical movies, I’ve come to the end of the road. I see myself writing film books and starting to write theatre, so I’ll still be creative. I just think I’ve given all I have to give to movies.”
Quentin Tarantino has been quite vocal for years now about his plan to retire from filmmaking after his 10th feature film.
Once Upon in Hollywood is his ninth movie, intended to be his love letter to the filmmaking era that made him fall in love with cinema as a young kid.
“If it’s really well received, maybe I won’t go to 10. Maybe I’ll stop right now! Maybe I’ll stop while I’m ahead. We’ll see.”
Even Brad Pitt has no doubt about Quentin’s decision. As he told to the microphones of GQ Australia:
“No, I don’t think he’s bluffing at all. I think he’s dead serious. And I kind of openly lament that to him, but he understands the math of when he feels like directors start falling off their game. But he has other plans and we’re not going to have to say goodbye for a long time.”
