Quentin Tarantino is pretty much on top of the world right now — his last film, "Inglorious Basterds," earned Best Picture and Best Director nominations and his next film, "Django Unchained," is already December's most buzzed-about release — but in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he revealed that he can see the writing on the wall and plans to quit directing sooner rather than later.
The reason? He doesn't want to make a movie worse than "Death Proof."
"Death Proof," of course, was the Tarantino contribution to the experimental 2007 effort "Grindhouse," which paired the shock flick with Robert Rodriguez's "Planet Terror." Tarantino's half featured Kurt Russell as a stunt man serial killer who murders hot women by intentionally crashing his car while they are passengers. Okay, so "Death Proof" isn't exactly a great film, but over the past five years it has picked up a bit of a cult following. »
