Richard Curtis - Richard Curtis To Retire From Directing

Celebrated British moviemaker Richard Curtis is to give up directing following the release of his final film next month (Aug13).

The 56 year has written and produced some of Britain's best-known romantic comedies, including Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill and Bridget Jones's Diary, and he also directed Love Actually and The Boat That Rocked.

His latest film, About Time, starring Rachel MCAdams, is due to hit cinemas in August, but Curtis has revealed it will probably be the last film he ever directs.

He tells Britain's Empire magazine, "I waited a while in order to write (About Time). This probably will be the last film I will direct."

When asked for the reason behind his decision to retire from directing, he replies, "I don't know. Just a feeling... It feels like a summing-up to me. We'll see how things turn out."
