Ace filmmaker Quentin Tarantino says he is planning to retire after his tenth feature film.
Tarantino, who has directed and written eight films, said he feels content with his career. He also described the trust he has with his own artistic process, stating that he finds pleasure in creating projects from scratch and watching them develop, reports variety.com.
“There is this incredible satisfaction for me to think back, to what is usually only two years ago… and to think that there was a moment in time where me and a pen were sitting at a table in front of a blank piece of paper. It’s very gratifying for me,” Tarantino said.
Towards the end of The Creativity Conference in San Diego on Thursday, Tarantino shared that he plans to retire after his tenth feature film.
Though the end of his filmmaking career is nigh, Tarantino hopes that he will leave a lasting impression in cinema for future generations. “At the end of the day, if you’re going to get right down to it … the way I define success is when I’m finished with the career, and I’m considered one of the greatest filmmakers who ever lived. That would be successful. And going further, a great artist, not just filmmaker,” the Kill Bill filmmaker said.
He has previously teased that his next film could be a 1930s gangster movie set in Australia. But he’s also working on an undefined project revolving around his fascination with the year 1970.
