Jack Black Says He Plans To Retire 'Pretty Soon'

Jack Black Says He Plans To Retire 'Pretty Soon'

Jumanji star Jack Black has announced he plans to retire after 'maybe one more movie'.

The 50-year-old actor told Balance that Jumani could be his penultimate flick as he hopes to pack in Hollywood to spend more time with his wife and two sons.

He told the news outlet: "Well, I've got another Tenacious D record that I'd like to make.

"Maybe one more movie. I'm kind of enjoying the idea of early retirement. Not so early. I'm 50.

"I've been saying for a long time that this is the last movie. We'll see. I can't really say what my next thing is because it's too early; it's a jinxer. I've got a couple of tricks up my sleeve. But not too many. I'm looking to wrap it up pretty soon. Ride off into the sunset."

He went on to say that having more family time was a 'big part' of why he wanted to retire as he currently 'spends too much time away from home'.

However, Black then added that he isn't a big fan of 'five-year-plans' and said that if 'Tarantino comes a-knocking' then he would definitely be down to do that movie. I

And fans of Black shouldn't be too down-hearted as look as though even if he does shelve his acting career he still wants to forge ahead with Tenacious D, revealing to Balance that he and Kyle Gass will '100 percent' be back to the UK on a tour.

This isn't the first time Black has mentioned retirement, when his Hollywood Walk of Fame star was unveiled last year, he said during his speech: "And I'm here to announce my retirement," which was met with boos from fans.

He continued: "No, I got the thing. I got the thing. I made it!"

He jokingly doubled down on his comments in an interview on Live with Kelly and Ryan later that week, in which he said: "Why go on? Once you get the star, on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, you have achieved the highest level of awesomeness."

But, it seems as though he was unable to resist a second turn as Professor Sheldon "Shelly" Oberon in Jumani: The Next Level, which is screening in cinemas now.
