Quentin Tarantino keeps telling us that his career is finite and that he won’t make too many more movies. The man says that directing is a young man’s game. I think Clint Eastwood would disagree there, especially when Clint reminds people that he has a friend in Spain who is/was still directing at the sprite age of 104!
So among Tarantino’s ‘final’ projects could possibly be an old school gangster movie, or horror movie? Here is what he has to say;
There is not a genre left where I have that same burning desire I had to do a World War II–movie or a martial-arts movie. I think maybe the one genre left might be a 1930s-gangster movie, that kind of John Dillinger thing. I’m interested in doing something contemporary, where I can have a character who gets in a car and turns on the radio, so I can have a cool driving montage. And if I had all the time in the world, I would love to make a really, really scary horror film, like The Exorcist. But I don’t know if me taking my sense of humor and putting it in the backseat just to hit a tone of dread from beginning to end is the best use of my talents or my time.
I think Tarantino will continue making movies until he’s in the grave.
