Quentin revealed he would direct two more films

The 53-year-old joked: "Drop the mic. Boom. Tell everybody," to applause.

Quentin opened up about his success at the conference, saying: "Hopefully, the way I define success when I finish my career is that I'm considered one of the greatest filmmakers that ever lived. And going further, a great artist, not just filmmaker."

He also spoke about the important of music in his work, and how highly he values it while making a film.

"So much of [a film] revolves around a sound or a song," he revealed.

"Before I've started, I'm seriously thinking about the music. I'm listening to a track and picturing everyone at the Cannes Palais just loving it."

Quentin spoke about his success 

The star director's latest project, The Hateful Eight, was a Western mystery film which was briefly cancelled in 2014 after the script leaked. At the time, he said: "I'm not making this next. I'm going to publish it, and that's it for now. I give it out to six people, and if I can't trust them to that degree, then I have no desire to make it.

"I'll publish it. I'm done. I'll move on to the next thing. I've got ten more where that came from."

Quentin's next two films could be a while away, as he revealed that he was currently working on a non-fiction project about the history of cinema in 1970. He said: "It could be a book, a documentary, a five-part podcast."
