The films of Quentin Tarantino, one of Hollywood’s most renowned directors, are among the industry’s all-time classics. Some of Tarantino’s most successful films include Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, the Kill Bill series, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, all of which have been critically acclaimed and have broken box office records. It’s hard to think that the filmmaker has only directed nine films in his whole career (ten if you consider Kill Bill as a single feature). Unfortunately, Tarantino remains true to his vow and will not make another picture after his tenth.
The 59-year-old director talks to CNN’s Chris Wallace about his decision to retire from the industry following the release of his next picture. It seems like Tarantino is already feeling “out of touch” with the movies being made and released today.
“I appreciate it. As for how long I’ve been doing it, well… After 30 years in the business, I feel it’s time to call it quits. In other words, I perform for a living. You see, I don’t want to labor to the point of diminishing returns; I want to create something that leaves you wanting more, rather than merely tired. One, I don’t want to become this old guy who’s out of touch, especially when I already feel a little like that when it comes to the most recent films in theaters. That’s exactly what transpires.”
And yet, Tarantino’s most recent effort, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, has been a box office hit. Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Margot Robbie all starred in the picture, which was nominated for two Academy Awards and won two of them, including Pitt’s for Best Supporting Actor. Box office earnings of $374 million against a $90 million budget indicate the film’s success. Tarantino may not seem relevant to modern audiences, yet he has maintained a presence in the cinema business.

Director Quentin Tarantino has said that he has no idea “What a Movie Is” in the modern film industry. To paraphrase the work of Quentin Tarantino Marvel Studios/Marvel NBC’s: It’s no secret that the MCU and DCEU are the undisputed kings of the box office when it comes to comic book movies. Some movies, like Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, have opening weekend sales that original films can’t touch. Since Tarantino is well aware of the current climate, he has said that his next film will not be released for some time.
“No, I don’t at all because I’m also not in a great rush to do my final movie either,” Tarantino remarked when asked whether he had an idea for his 10th feature. “A movie is something I know nothing about right now. Is it a Netflix show or movie? Is it something that couples watch together on the sofa while kicking back with Amazon? “His question.
Recently, Tarantino commented on the state of modern Hollywood films, stating, “Both the ’50s and the ’80s, in my opinion, are the worst periods for Hollywood’s film industry. Only equalled by the present time period.” It’s obvious that Tarantino isn’t a lover of modern filmmaking; he’s taking his time planning his next film.
What else can we expect from his tenth feature? It’s anyone’s guess, but Tarantino might very well cast Uma Thurman’s daughter Maya Hawke in Kill Bill 3. As for what the filmmaker chooses to work on next, fans will just have to wait and see, but whatever it is, it will undoubtedly be another smash success in Tarantino’s canon.
