After much speculation, famed director Quentin Tarantino has confirmed that he will indeed retire after two more films.

“Drop the mic. Boom. Tell everybody, ‘Match that shit,'” he said on Thursday at the Adobe Max, a creativity conference in San Diego.

Previously, Tarantino had insisted that he would only make ten films, and two more will total just that.

While his next full-length scripted movie is expected to be a “Bonnie and Clyde-esque” affair set in 1930s Australia, the director also revealed that he is currently focused on a historical nonfiction project.

“It could be a book, a documentary, a five-part podcast,” he says, in reference to the project which may detail one of the most pivotal years in cinema, 1970.

In addition to confirming his pending retirement, Tarantino also dished on success and his creative process while at the California conference.

“Hopefully, the way I define success when I finish my career is that I’m considered one of the greatest filmmakers that ever lived. And going further, a great artist, not just filmmaker,” he said.

Not NYC, not LA.
