While many had speculated that Tarantino named his first child after his frequent collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio, he revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live that’s not the case.

‘”We almost didn’t name him that because people would assume I named him after Leonardo DiCaprio,’ Tarantino admitted.

‘There’s nothing wrong with that, but … he’s named after my wife’s grandfather, but also because, just in our hearts, he was our little lion,’ the filmmaker added.

The filmmaker had previously hinted that he would retire after his 10th film, which would be the next film he makes, though it’s still unclear what that might be.

Tarantino was honored with a lifetime achievement award at the Rome Film Festival in October, where he admitted he has, ‘no idea’ what his 10th film will be.

When asked if he could make a sequel to Kill Bill that he had previously hinted about, the director coyly said, ‘Why not?’

The filmmaker also explained that he is keen to delve into comedy as he described an unspecified Spaghetti Western project that he is planning.

However Tarantino, who was given his award by Italian filmmaker Dario Argento, suggested that the western might not be a film.

He said: ‘It’s not like my next movie. It’s a piece of something else that I’m thinking about doing – and I’m not going to describe what it is. But part of this thing, there is supposed to be a Spaghetti Western in it.’
