Quentin Tarantino says his directing career has “come to the end of the road”

Quentin Tarantino has revealed he has “come to the end of the road” in regards to directing theatrical films, although he says he’ll still be doing creative things.

The announcement came about in an interview with GQ Australia in the leadup to the release of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood next month.

Legendary filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has “come to the end of the road” of his film directing career, opting for other creative pursuits.

The iconic movie mogul said:

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.”

Time and time again, Tarantino has said that he will only ever make 10 films, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood will bring him to 9, and the film he’s reportedly currently working on, an R rated Star Trek film, will be the big 10.

The star of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Brad Pitt has expressed he doesn’t doubt the director’s announcement, saying:

“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.”

Tarantino has directed a number of iconic films including Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight.
