Quentin Tarantino says he's only making two more films


Quentin Tarantino previously claimed his career would consist of 10 movies - and he's now confirmed he'll only be making two more.

Speaking at the Jerusalem Cinematheque after a Pulp Fiction screening, in a chat summarised by Variety, the director said: "I'm planning on stopping at 10. So it'll be two more."

There was a slight caveat, with Tarantino suggesting that if he had another story to tell during his retirement years he'd tell it - because it would be considered separate from his previous work.

"Even if at 75, if I have this other story to tell, it would still kind of work because that would make those 10. They would be there and that would be that," he said. "But the one he did when he was an old fucking man, that geriatric one exists completely on its own in the old folks' home and is never put in the same shelf next to the other 10. So it doesn't contaminate the other 10."

Tarantino has so far bestowed us with Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill 1, Kill Bill 2 (he counts these as one movie), Deathproof, Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight - all of which he claims are split between two fictional universes, and can be considered as made in threes.

Let's just hope the final two films are as gripping as the first eight.
