Tarantino: I wanted to quit movies

Quentin Tarantino has revealed that he once considered quitting the movie-making business.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker admitted he thought of stopping after his 10th film, but decided against it.

"There was a time when I said I wanted to stop after 10 movies, but I went back on the idea," he told So Film.

"OK, it would sound really cool because it's a round number and it would make sense as I would have made three movies per decade, but it's not fixed in time. I still have some more things to do before being done with movies."

Quentin, who has directed 11 movies and been a writer on 17 film scripts, said he is enjoying his career at this moment in time.

"Up to now, everything's fine. To me, the last 20 years have gone well: I'm happy with my career, I'm happy to be where I am now, I'm happy with the way my work has been received, inside the cinema industry and outside. But it might not last," he said.

"At the minute, I only answer to my own ideas, even if I try my hardest not to be conscious about myself and about what I do. In fact, the person I trust least to talk about my work is myself. "

The 50-year-old hinted he would like to turn his hand to the horror genre.

"I've done what I wanted to do by the time I was this age. Today, I'm further down the road. There are no genres I absolutely want to do any more, like ticking boxes: 'This, done'. I don't think about Kill Bill 3 that much, as... we already visited them," he said.

"If there was something I would like to work on again, it would be Honshu's movies, maybe. Or a horror movie, perhaps."
