Controversial director Woody Allen has revealed his plans to retire soon after finishing his 50th film, announcing that his next film will be his last. Tsshe Oscar-winning director and screenwriter told a Spanish newspaper in an interview published Saturday that he intends for his next film to be his last, and that he’ll then focus more on writing, as he would like to work on a novel.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, he said his 50th and final film, one which he previously has said will film in France later this year, will be similar in tone to his 2005 thriller Match Point. “My idea, in principle, is not to make more movies and focus on writing,”

Allen told the publication. Earlier this year, Allen had shared his plans to quit filmmaking in an Instagram Live conversation with Alec Baldwin saying that the “thrill is gone” for him with filmmaking.“I’ll probably make at least one more movie, but a lot of the thrill is gone because it doesn’t have the whole cinema effect,” Allen said during the chat. “When I started to do a film, it would go into movie houses all over the country and people would come by the hundreds to watch it in big groups on a big screen. Now you do a movie and you get a couple of weeks in a movie house — maybe six weeks, two weeks, or whatever — and then it goes right to streaming or right to Pay-Per-View.”

“So, it’s not as enjoyable to me as it was,” he added. “I don’t get the same fun of doing a movie and putting it in a movie house.” Allen’s career has been marred by the accusation, which he has long denied, that he sexually abused his daughter Dylan Farrow when she was 7. Following the allegations, as the report suggests, Amazon Studios canceled his $68 million four-film deal, and the director’s recent movies have had a tough time finding distribution.

The four-time Academy Award winner is currently working on his 50th and now final feature titled Wasp 22, an entirely French-language project that will be filmed in Paris next month with a cast of local actors. Comparing the film to 2005’s Match Point, Woody Allen described the upcoming outing as “exciting, dramatic, and also very sinister.”
