The host asked the director if his next film would really be his last, adding for himself that he thought it was a monstrous idea, to which Tarantino replied in the affirmative, adding that directors at a solid age are no longer making movies as good as they did in their prime:
“Imagine if Don Siegel had left right after ‘Escape from Alcatraz.’ What a final film that would have been! The fat point! But he made two more pictures that he hardly really wanted to finish.”
Maar also asked if the 58-year-old Tarantino was planning to remake his debut film, Mad Dogs, and thus loop his filmography. Quentin replied that for him shooting “Mad Dogs” was something of a chance to “seize the moment,” and it can’t be repeated, but he did consider making a remake, but clarified that he wouldn’t do it.
“No, Internet, I won’t do that! But I was thinking about it,” Tarantino said.
