However, we have a piece of sad news for all Tarantino fans. The famous director has revealed that he will stop making movies after his next one.

The 'Pulp Fiction' director addressed the speculations finally and said it was more a creator's choice and he wanted to leave the audience with more happy memories instead of making them bitter toward the director's creativity.

The director spoke to Chris Wallace about his fears of sounding out of touch as the film industry rapidly changes around him, especially since he's been in the business for so long. He explained, "Thank you. Well, it's...I've been doing it for a long time. I've been doing it for 30 years, and it's, it's time to wrap up the show. Like I said I'm an entertainer. I want to leave you wanting more, you know, and not just work and I don't want to work to diminishing returns. I don't want to be...one, I don't want to become this old man who's out of touch, who had already, I'm feeling a bit like an old man out of touch when it comes to the current movies that are out right now. And that's what happens."

There has been speculation that 'Kill Bill: Volume 3' will be his last movie. However, the director neither agreed nor denied it. He just said, "No I don't at all, because I'm also not in a giant hurry to make my last movie either. Right now I don't even know what a movie is. Is that something that plays on Netflix? Is that something that plays on Amazon and everyone wants and people watch it on their couch with their wife or their husband? Is that a movie? Because my last movie opened up in 3000 theaters and played all over the world for, you know, for a couple of months."
