Quentin Tarantino hints at retirement after 10th film

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

The 49-year-old has directed cult films like "Inglourious Basterds", "Kill Bill", "Pulp Fiction", "Reservoir Dogs" and his eighth directorial effort, "Django Unchained" is all set to hit theatres, Ace Showbiz reported quoting Playboy magazine.

"You stop when you stop, but in a fanciful world, 10 movies in my filmography would be nice. I've made seven. If I have a change of heart, if I come up with a new story, I could come back. But if I stop at 10, that would be okay as an artistic statement," Tarantino said.

"I just don't want to be an old-man filmmaker. I want to stop at a certain point. Directors don't get better as they get older. Usually the worst films in their filmography are those last four at the end. I am all about my filmography, and one bad film ruins up three good ones," he added.

Tarantino's upcoming western "Django Unchained" will come out in theaters across the US on December 25.

The film stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L Jackson, Walton Goggins, Kerry Washington and Jonah Hill.
