Quentin Tarantino Reveals Family Was Behind His Decision to Quit Directing

Having said that he plans to write more as he prepares for fatherhood, the 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' helmer adds he nowadays feels that 'directing is a young man's game.'

AceShowbiz - Quentin Tarantino's decision to walk away from directing after one more film is centred around his upcoming role as a dad.

The father-to-be has often talked of retiring from moviemaking after making 10 films, and as "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" is his ninth, he admits this part of his career is winding down.

Confirming his decision on ABC News website Popcorn, Tarantino confessed his changing family dynamic made it easy to consider a new direction.

"I kind of feel this is the time for the third act (of my life) to just lean a little bit more into the literary, which would be good as a new father, as a new husband," he says, revealing he plans to write more. "I wouldn't be grabbing my family and yanking them to Germany or Sri Lanka or wherever the next story takes place. I can be a little bit more of a homebody and become a little bit more of a man of letters."

The director's wife, singer Daniella Pick, is pregnant with the 56-year-old filmmaker's first child.

Quentin also feels it's time to step aside and let younger filmmakers shine: "I guess I do feel that directing is a young man's game," he adds. "I do feel that cinema is changing and I'm a little bit part of the old guard."
