Quentin Tarantino has reiterated his decision to take retirement from direction once he has completed 10 films and expressed an interest in writing novels and plays in the future.

The 52-year-old actor said that he wanted to retire from direction after completing 10 movies and hopes to complete two more films after his upcoming flick, The Hateful Eight, hits cinemas, the Independent reports.

In a recent interview, the Pulp Fiction director said after taking retirement , he would start mulling about his creative future, adding that he basically desires to write novels and plays.

“What I want to do basically is I want to write novels and I want to write theatre and I want to direct theatre. I actually want to do a theatrical adaptation of Hateful Eight because I actually like the idea of other actors having a chance to play my characters and see what happens from that.”

Tarantino also said he liked the idea of a stage version of Reservoir Dogs, his 1992 debut, which he said “could be put onstage and has been put onstage many times”.

According to sources, the director earlier revealed his retirement plans, saying, “I don’t believe you should stay onstage until people are begging you to get off. I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more.”

The upcoming mystery flick, starring actor Samuel L Jackson, Kurt Russell and actress Jennifer Jason Leigh, will hit the US theatres on December 25.
