Hey, there. Joseph Medina here, giving you your weekly update on whether or not Quentin Tarantino is actually anywhere near the end of his career, or if he’s just been lying all these years. For a long time now, the filmmaker has expressed his opinion that film directing is a young man’s game, and that he doesn’t want to linger around the profession longer than he is needed or wanted.
But, with each passing film, we can’t help but wonder whether or not we’re really approaching the end. With his latest movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, he is ticking off that ninth box, meaning we’re just one movie away.
“I think when it comes to theatrical movies, I’ve come to the end of the road,” Tarantino told GQ Australia. “I see myself writing 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.”

Though, from the sound of it, he may even be up for ending his career sooner. A few weeks back, he said we may not even get a tenth if he can’t get it in front of cameras by the time he’s 60, and in the interview with this outlet, it almost sounds like he’s contemplating ending things altogether.
“Well, um, if it’s really well received, maybe I won’t go to 10. Maybe I’ll stop right now! Maybe I’ll stop while I’m ahead. We’ll see.”
Basically, don’t be surprised if this is his last movie. In fact, given the subject matter of Hollywood, I wouldn’t be shocked if it was. While it is a blow to filmmaking, I’d still be interested to see what kind of books the dude would put out.
Will you be sad to see him leaving filmmaking? Let us know your thoughts down below!
