Director Quinten Tarintino has long said that he only has it in him to direct a few more movies. Now, it appears that his retirement from movie making might be sooner rather than later.

Speaking with GQ about his upcoming film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Tarintino revealed that he is considering stepping away from directing films shortly after the release of the film. "I think when it comes to theatrical movies, I’ve come to the end of the road,” Tarintino explained. “I see myself writing film books and starting to write theater, so I’ll still be creative. I just think I’ve given all I have to give to movies.”
