John Waters to Retire?

John Waters to Retire?

John Waters says the end of his filmmaking career is quickly approaching.

"I want to do two more movies -- that’s enough," the gay writer/director/actor/artist said to Modern Painters magazine. "I hope I can make two more."

Waters said he will continue to focus on writing, art, and his one-man show that he performs across the country about 25 times each year.

Waters is currently working on the sequel to Hairspray, following the 2007 musical version of his original 1988 film. He is also developing Fruitcake,  a film about a group of runaway children. Waters has been making films for decades, including Cry-Baby, Serial Mom, Pink Flamingos, and Cecil B. DeMented.
