Quentin Tarantino on His Retirement Plans From Filmography
Quentin Tarantino has been working on his upcoming film, The Movie Critic. While there are not many details available about the project, the film is reportedly set in the 1970s and follows a female lead. The director has claimed that The Movie Critic will be his last flick, and after this, he will not work on any other motion pictures.
He once again confirmed his plans during his recent interview with Deadline, saying that The Movie Critic will be his last film. “Yes. Motion picture, yes,” he said. When asked if he is planning to retire from direction, he said, “Well, I am ending the filmography.”
He further shared that he could still work on a TV show, short film, or a play, but he would mostly be working as a writer. “But I’ll probably just be more of a writer,” he clarified. The Kill Bill director said that it’s “just time to go out” as he prefers going out while he is still at the top.
Tarantino said that films released on streaming platforms would cause “diminishing returns” and he doesn’t like working with them. “And I mean, now is a good time because I mean, what even is a motion picture anyway, anymore?” he said, claiming that movies are supposed to release in theatres.

He’d said it’s not set in stone and if there was something that he REALLY wanted to make, he’d make it.
Just can’t see him staying away from the medium he so deeply loves.

Somehow I think he’s going to get a couple more ideas in retirement and make at least one to two more films.
