Quentin Tarantino will most likely be calling it a day and folding up his director's chair after his next movie.

The director of Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs will conclude his feature film career with his tenth movie, which will come after Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, due to land in the UK in just a few days.

And he plans to go out with a bang, according to recent comments made during a promotional trip to Russia.

He told reporters: “If you think about the idea of all the movies telling one story, and each film is like a train boxcar, connected to each other, this one would sort of be the big show-stopping climax of it all.

“And I could imagine that the tenth one would be a little more epilogue-y.”

Tarantino is visiting Moscow for the premiere of his new movie, which takes place in the show business world of late 60s Los Angeles, and toured the Kremlin with the Russian culture minister Vladimir Medinsky, who is vocally critical of Hollywood.

He recently said that he is 'totally indifferent' to the performance of Hollywood movies in Russia, however, he added this week that he has approached the British producer Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, David Heyman, about making movies in Russia, saying that Heyman was 'very interested'.

Tarantino went on to tell TV network Dozhd, which is independent from the state: “I don't agree with some of the things that I've heard about that are going on when it comes to the government.

“But when I'm here, I'm here to see the Russian people. I'm here to see my fans.”

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, starring Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie, is due out in the UK on August 14.
