During various interviews, Quentin has stated that his 10th film will be the last and he will head to retirement, post that.
However, an earlier retirement could be possible for the director, depending on the success of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Talking to GQ Australia, Tarantino revealed that when it comes to theatrical movies, he thinks he has come to the end of the road. Instead, Quentin sees himself writing books and theatre, which will still keep him in the creative arts. The filmmaker thinks he has given his all to the movies. "If [Once Upon a Time in Hollywood] is really well received, maybe I won’t go to ten. Maybe I’ll stop right now. Maybe I’ll stop while I’m ahead. We’ll see," Tarantino stated to GQ Australia.
