Noted filmmaker Woody Allen has announced his retirement from filmmaking.
Allen, who is in Europe to work on his 50th film, announced this during an interview with the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia.
The Vicky Cristina Barcelona informed the newspaper that his main focus, in his twilight years, would be more on writing than directing.
Allen's latest, and his final film as a director, would be entirely shot in French and the story will be based out of Paris.
Allen says his upcoming film will be "exciting, dramatic, and very sinister" like Match Point.
Besides being a director, Allen is also known for his acting skills.
Woody Allen began his career in the 1960s and his first film was the 1965 comedy What's New Pussycat? which featured Allen both as a performer and as a writer.
He made his directorial debut with the 1966 American comedy What's Up, Tiger Lilly?
Allen has so far won 12 Oscars, 17 BAFTA Awards, and 9 Golden Globe Awards.
