With Quentin Tarantino beginning to make the media rounds for his upcoming film Django Unchained, the director seems interested in discussing a topic that may send fans into deep depression. In a recent interview with Playboy, Tarantino discussed his plans for retirement, and more specifically how he does not wish to continue making films past a certain age.
“I just don’t want to be an old-man filmmaker,” Tarantino said. “I want to stop at a certain point. Directors don’t get better as they get older.”
The director went on to say that he feels 10 films would likely be a good number to call it quits. That would mean the director would have a potential two or three films left, depending on whether you count Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and Kill Bill: Vol. 2 as one unified film or separate entries.
Django Unchained, the eighth film in Tarantino’s filmography, hits theaters on Dec. 25.
