Quentin Tarantino 'to retire after next two films'

Updated: 

Quentin Tarantino has reportedly confirmed his plans to retire after directing his 10th movie.

The Pulp Fiction film-maker is said to have made the pledge at the Adobe Max creativity conference in San Diego - meaning his next two films will be his last.

"Drop the mic. Boom. Tell everybody, 'Match that s***,'" he reportedly told the crowd.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Quentin, 53, said he is currently focused on a historical non-fiction project about the year 1970, which he considers the most pivotal in cinema history.

"It could be a book, a documentary, a five-part podcast," he was reported to have said.

Quentin teased his next full-length scripted film earlier this year as potentially being a "Bonnie and Clyde-esque" tale set in 1930s Australia.

His eight previous films include Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill (Volumes 1 and 2), Grindhouse, Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight.
