Tarantino already announced that his career would only last ten films or so. But now after his eighth film, ironically titled The Hateful Eight, Tarantino has confirmed he will definitely retire after his next two films.
The legendary director was at Adobe Max (via THR), an event held by the software company in San Diego. He laughed, “Hopefully, the way I define success when I finish my career is that I’m considered one of the greatest filmmakers that ever lived. And going further, a great artist, not just filmmaker.”
Rumour has it that Tarantino’s next film will be set in 1930’s Australia, with him saying at the event that he is currently focusing on a historical non-fiction project.
There’s no doubt Quentin Tarantino is one of the most influential and significant filmmakers, as well as artists for the last twenty years or so. His early films have been a staple of pop culture: Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill and Reservoir Dogs are commonly referenced in everyday goings on. His success spreads to box office too, within his filmography there’s not a single box office failure. Allowing him to be as creative as he wants to be.
