After several months of speculation Quentin Tarantino has once again confirmed the rumors about his retirement.
“Drop the mic. Boom. Tell everybody, ‘Match that shit,'” he said last Thursday at Adobe Max, a creativity conference held inside the San Diego Convention Center. Tarantino had hinted at making ten films, with the next two reaching that total.
His next project is slated to be a “Bonnie and Clyde-esque” tale set in 1930s Australia. The director told the audience that he is focused at the moment on a historical non-fiction project.
“It could be a book, a documentary, a five-part podcast,” he says. He has spent the last several years studying the year 1970, one where he feels is the most pivotal in the history of cinema.
The 53-year-old also went on to discuss how he defines success.
“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,” he said.
