Quentin Tarantino is getting serious about retirement, feels old

‘I guess I do feel that directing is a young man’s game’

The clock is ticking for Quentin Tarantino, who announced his ten-film retirement plan back in 2014. With his ninth film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood out, this leaves room for one last film – or does it?

In a recent video interview with Peter Travers for Rolling Stone, Tarantino said: “I guess I do feel that directing is a young man’s game. I do feel that cinema is changing, and I’m a little bit part of the old guard.”

The Django Unchained director also opened up about having his personal reasons for wanting to leave film, saying: “I kind of feel this is the time for the third act (of my life) to just lean a little bit more into the literary, which would be good as a new father, as a new husband.”

He added: “I wouldn’t be grabbing my family and yanking them to Germany or Sri Lanka or wherever the next story takes place. I can be a little bit more of a homebody, and become a little bit more of a man of letters.”

This doesn’t mean Tarantino is abandoning cinema completely, however. As well as confirming that Kill Bill 3 is definitely on the cards, the director – who’s nominated for an Oscar for best picture – has also revealed that he’s directing a Once Upon A Time In Hollywood spin-off, set around the film’s fictitious TV show Bounty Law, where Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Rick Dalton plays gunslinger Jake Cahill. Oh, and he’s writing a book too.
