Quentin Tarantino Retiring After "Hateful Eight"

Quentin Tarantino has been talking about retiring for several years - and the director is truly serious.
During a talk with international buyers last week, Tarantino insisted he plans to retire after his 10th film. He's currently shopping his eighth, "The Hateful Eight."
Actors Kurt Russell and Samuel L. Jackson were in attendance and were skeptical. The former said "You don't actually believe that s---, do you?" and the latter wondered, "What's Quentin going to do with himself if he's not doing this?" But Tarantino held firm to his resolve, according to Deadline.
"I don't believe you should stay on stage until people are begging you to get off. I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more," he explained. "I do think directing is a young man's game and I like the idea of an umbilical cord connection from my first to my last movie. I'm not trying to ridicule anyone who thinks differently, but I want to go out while I'm still hard ... I like that I will leave a 10-film filmography, and so I've got two more to go after this. It's not etched in stone, but that is the plan."
He left a little room to do more than 10, adding, "If, later on, I come across a good movie, I won't not do it just because I said I wouldn't."
As to the question of what Tarantino would do with his time if he wasn't directing, he offered, "Writing plays and books, going gracefully into my tender years."
