Weitz hints at Hollywood retirement

19 November 2009

New Moon director Chris Weitz has revealed plans to quit making movies

The filmmaker has admitted he struggles with the workload being a director and is looking forward to take some time out to travel and learn new skills.

He said, "Every time I make a movie I'm pretty much convinced it's the last time I'm going to be able to do it and that really it's a rather silly occupation to undertake. But I think I have maybe one more film in me.

"You know, it sounds ridiculous, but I'd really like to be a better surfer. I'd like to learn to speak Spanish fluently - I'd like to travel around, live in Italy. I'd like to learn kung fu. It's nice to make moves, but it's also really hard."
