Print this article One of Hollywood's most iconic directors and producers has reportedly called it quits. George Lucas recently told Empire magazine that he plans on leaving his company Lucasfilms and retiring to spend more time on making movies as a hobby.
Although Lucas may not get behind the camera for any more "Star Wars" or "Indiana Jones" movies, he did leave the door open for some more projects in the future. However, whether or not they make it big screen is up in the air, he says.
"I've always wanted to make movies that were more experimental in nature and not have to worry about showing them in movie theaters," he told the magazine.
Lucas' retirement from the movie industry may not come as much of a surprise to some people. The last film he directed was the 2005 hit "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith." Since then, he has served as a producer on several films including 2010's "Red Tails."
Whether his retirement is permanent remains to be seen, but fans looking to take at trip down memory lane can check out some of Lucas' best movies including "American Graffiti" and "Labyrinth," which he produced.
