In 2014, the Oscar-winning film-maker had said he would retire after making 10 films. The Hateful Eight, released in January this year, was his eighth film.
“I’m probably only going to make 10 movies, so I’m already planning on what I’m going to do after that. That’s why I’m counting them. I have two more left. I want to stop at a certain point,,” he said last year.

The 53-year-old filmmaker said he hopes he will be remembered as one of the greatest filmmakers and people would remember him as a great artist instead of just a filmmaker.
“Hopefully, the way I define success when I finish my career is that I’m considered one of the greatest film-makers that ever lived. And going further, a great artist, not just film-maker, ” he replied when asked how he personally defined success.
Tarantino also indicated that one of his two planned future features could be a “Bonnie and Clyde-esque tale” set in the Australia of the 1930s. The director also added that he is planning to work on a project connected to “the year 1970”, milestone year in the history of world cinema.
“It could be a book, a documentary, a five-part podcast,” he added. The director earlier revealed his plans to write novels and working on stage plays after he retires as a film-maker.
As he has bagged academy awards for Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained, films including Jackie Brown and Kill Bill strengthened the director’s reputation for violence and a love of homage. Django Unchained, released in 2012, considered to be his biggest box office hit, earning $425m worldwide.
