Quentin Tarantino, the director of “Pulp Fiction,” “Reservoir Dogs,” “Django Unchained” and the “Kill Bill” movies, has said for years that he plans to quit after making 10 movies, and he just confirmed that he’s sticking to that plan.
Variety reports that Tarantino, appearing at the Jerusalem Cinematheque presentation of “Pulp Fiction,” said: “I’m planning on stopping at 10. So it’ll be two more.”
Tarantino noted during the presentation that he considers “Kill Bill 1” and “Kill Bill 2” to be one movie, which brings his total so far to eight. He also hinted that, should he get a hankering in his golden years, he might be able to rationalize breaking his own rule.
“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 f—ing 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.”
