T Minus 14


Quentin Tarantino likes to pay homage to other directorial greats, and according to THR, he's taking some real-life inspiration from Jean Renoir: "I intend to quit at 60," said the 46-year-old. "And I'm going to do exactly what he did. I'm going to write novels and cinema literature, stuff like that." You may mourn the loss of potential sequels to Kill Bill and Inglourious Basterds, but I cry for Tarantino's future withdrawal from wacky talking dog commercials for Japanese TV. [THR]
