Once Upon A Time In Hollywood helmer Quentin Tarantino is ready to walk. He has said his next film will be his last. 

The 59-year-old Pulp Fiction director will make an 11th, and final, feature-length film before hanging up his director’s hat. 

‘I’ve been doing it for a long time; I’ve been doing it for 30 years,’ he said in an interview with CNN’s Chris Wallace. ‘And it’s time to wrap up the show.’

The Tennessee native has already directed 10 critically-acclaimed films though he views the Kill Bill movies as one film rather than two. 

The two-time Academy Award winner made it clear he didn’t want to keep making movies and drift further away from his audience. 

‘I don’t want to become this old man who’s out of touch when, already, I’m feeling a bit like an old man out of touch when it comes to the current movies that are out right now,’ he explained.

Though he knows his next movie will be his last, the Reservoir Dogs director said he doesn’t know what the plot of that film will be yet. 

‘Right now, I don’t even know what a movie is — is that something that plays on Netflix? Is that something that plays on Amazon and people watch it on their couch with their wife or their husband? Is that a movie?’ he said. 

‘Cause my last movie opened up in 3,000 theaters and played all over the world for a couple of months.’ 

While there have been some talks over the past few years of Tarantino possibly making a third Kill Bill movie, there has been little new information on that front.

‘I see myself writing books and starting to write theatre, so I’ll still be creative,’ he said. ‘I just think I’ve given all I have to give to movies.’ 

The Jackie Brown director released his second book earlier this month about films in the New Hollywood era. He previously released a novelization of the film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.   

Quentin will also have more time to spend with family. The Hateful Eight director married Israeli singer Daniella Pick, 38, in 2018. They couple have two children, one born in 2020 and the other born this past summer.
