After his recent war with Marvel and Shang-Chi actor Simu Liu, Quentin Tarantino is all set to retire from Hollywood. Following his recent comments, the Kill Bill director was barraged by fans defending Simu Liu.
After much consideration, Tarantino has finally decided to retire from his film-making career and the reason is not people’s backlash, but for going out with a bang.
Quentin Tarantino Will Exit After His 10th Film
In his comments, Tarantino casually mentioned that the people didn’t go to see Shang-Chi for Simu Liu (the lead actor) but because it was a Marvel production. Following his comments, the people seemed to attack the veteran director.
In a recent interview with YMH Studios, Quentin Tarantino claimed that the upcoming film will be his 10th film. Although it is only the 10th, the project will also be his last in the Hollywood film-making industry.
“I’ve done everything I wanted to do. I’ve had just an amazing career. I’ve had amazing amount of luck, amazing good fortune. I had no idea that the audience— in fact, if I had to guess I’d have guessed that the audience wouldn’t accept my movies. And that ended up not being the case. And I’ve been able to work in this business at the highest level a director can work. I wanna leave at that high level.”
The Inglorious Basterds director continued,
“I wanna leave where a new Quentin Tarantino movie coming out is an event. I don’t wanna be just that— “I remember when I was so into him. I remember when I was so passionate— I remember when I had that shit on my wall. He’s fun and everything, but he’s an old man, he’s not the same thing, and he’s out of touch.”
Planning to go out with a bang, Quentin Tarantino has only made 9 movies in his Hollywood years. It should be noteworthy that the director received 2 Oscars (for writing, however) from his 9 projects.
Quentin Tarantino’s 10th & Final Movie
It was recently stated by Quentin Tarantino himself that his 2019 project Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood was his best project yet. The film starred Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie in lead roles and went on to receive several awards.
The 10th and final project of Tarantino however remains largely unknown at the time. The Pulp Fiction director stated that the project is still in the very early stages of development and he is currently working on the script of the movie.
Considering Tarantino, the movie would surely be one-of-a-kind and would be something unique in storytelling abilities.
