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.”
