Quentin Tarantino reveals that Once Upon A Time In Hollywood could be his last movie


Quentin Tarantino has revealed that he's ready to hang up his clapperboard.

The legendary director, whose ninth movie Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is set to be released in August, made the comments during an interview with the Australian edition of GQ

Why Once Upon A Time In Hollywood could be Quentin Tarantino's greatest movie to date

He admitted: “I think when it comes to theatrical movies, I’ve come to the end of the road.

“I see myself writing film books and starting to write theatre, so I’ll still be creative. I just think I’ve given all I have to give to movies.” 

The news will come as a blow to Tarantino's fans, many of whom have grown up with such iconic movies as Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained and the Kill Bill series. But he's still going to make the Star Trek film that everyone's been talking about – right?

Er, not necessarily. Tarantino suggested in the interview that his involvement in further movie projects would depend on how Once Upon A Time In Hollywood goes down.

“If it's well received, maybe I won’t go to [film number] 10," mused the 56-year-old. "Maybe I’ll stop right now! Maybe I’ll stop while I’m ahead. We’ll see.”

Tarantino first sprang to fame with the 1992 cult classic Reservoir Dogs. Despite being made on a budget of less than $1.5million, it went on to become one of the most influential and quotable movies of all time.

His new film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, follows a faded actor (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double (Brad Pitt) as they attempt to resurrect their career in late-Sixties Tinseltown. The main plot is interweaved with the notorious Manson Family murders that took place in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood arrives at Cineworld cinemas on 14th August.
