Hollywood’s maverick director, Quentin Tarantino is known for surprising his fans around the world with his incisive cinematic vision and versatility. This time around the hotshot director not only surprises, but shocks the movie world by announcing his possible retirement from movie-making after his tenth creation. “I do think directing is a young man’s game and I like the idea of an umbilical cord connection from my first to my last movie. I don’t believe you should stay onstage until people are begging you to get off,” he told the audience at the American Film Market that took place in Santa Monica, California, earlier this month. The director who has given Hollywood hits like ‘Kill Bill’ and ‘Django Unchained’ is working on his eighth directorial ‘The Hateful Eight’ that includes Samuel L. Jackson, Channing Tatum and Jennifer Jason Leigh among its star cast.
With the release of ‘The Hateful Eight’ scheduled to take place sometime next year, Tarantino hopes it to be ‘a 70-mm event’ that will “remind people why this is something you can’t see on television and how this is an experience you can’t have when you watch movies in your apartment, your man cave or your iPhone or iPad.”
He also wishes to play his part in slowing down the tide of digital cinema by using the traditional 70-mm format in the best way possible. Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’ is expected to be yet another cinematic masterpiece, as fans will be able to see 24 frames play out per second while creating a grappling illusion of movement.
