Fans of brilliant actor-writer-director-producer Quentin Tarantino, brace yourself, we have some bad news. Tarantino, known for his unique style and ultra-violent films has announced that he will soon retire.

Drop the mic. Boom. Tell everyone, ‘Match that shit,”

At the Adobe Max creativity conference on November 3rd, Tarantino broke the news, confirming rumors, to the crowd that he will only direct two more projects before ending his directing career.

I’m planning on stopping at 10. So it’ll be two more. Even if at 75. I have this other story to tell, it would still kind of work because that would make those 10.” Tarantino stated in July at a the Jerusalem Cinematheque.

Tarantino has had a great run. He’s directed films such ‘Pulp Fiction’, ‘Reservoir Dogs’, ‘Kill Bill 1 & 2’, ‘Sin City’,’Grindhouse’, ‘Death Proof’, Inglorious Bastards’, ‘Django Unchained’, and ‘The Hateful Eight’. He has a long list of successful projects that he wrote, including ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’, and ‘Natural Born Killers’, just to name a few. On IMDb, there are several films that he wrote still to come, imcluding ‘Killer Crow’, ‘Kill Bill: Volume 3’, and ‘Forty Lashes Less One’. Lets not forget his acting career. He has had roles in 35 films and shows, often making an appearance in his own projects.

 

Tarantino reportedly said that his project, set in the 1970’s, is a historical non-fictional project. He told THR that, “It could be a book, a documentary, a five-part podcast,”

When asked how he defines success he replied:

“Hopefully, the way I define success when I finish my career is that I’m considered one of the greatest filmmakers that ever lived. And going further, a great artist, not just filmmaker.”

 

The day that Quentin Tarantino steps away from the camera for the final time will be a sad one, not only for his fans but for the film industry as well. There is no question that he has left his mark. His style is uniquely his and can not be reproduced. At only 53, he’s a film legend that has accomplished more than most filmmakers have ever dream of. I only wish that he would stay and continue to delight us fans with more films.
