Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino popped up on last night’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” and once again reiterated his plan to retire after his next directorial effort and his tenth overall.
Maher asked if the “Pulp Fiction” helmer was still intent to quit when he is still in his prime, adding that experience can change perspective and suggesting that had he made “Reservoir Dogs” tomorrow, he could make it better.
That’s when Tarantino responded with a surprise saying he previously had considered the idea:
“That [film] is kind of a ‘capture time in a moment’ kind of thing. I actually considered remaking ‘Reservoir Dogs’ as my last movie. I won’t do it, internet. But I considered it.”
He also explained his rationale saying from his knowledge of film history, filmmakers “do not get better” after a certain point and cited Don Siegel saying what if he had quit his career in 1979 with “Escape from Alcatraz” as his final film.
Tarantino was on the show to promote the paperback book companion to 2019’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”.
