    Daniel Day-Lewis has announced he is retiring from acting.

    The 60-year-old star, who has played presidents, writers, and gang leaders in a career that has spanned four decades, has one final film awaiting release, an untitled drama set in the world of high fashion. It is scheduled to hit theaters on December 25, 2017 and reunites him with Paul Thomas Anderson, who directed Day-Lewis to a best actor Oscar in 2007’s “There Will Be Blood.” Day-Lewis intends to help promote the movie, according to a person familiar with his plans.

    I assume this will go the way of Soderbergh and Miyazaki but if not, he will be greatly missed. Arguably the greatest of all time.

    interesting. a legendary actor, although he didn't always pick the best roles/films (mostly did). i should watch My Beautiful Laundrette in honor.

    I mean the dude does like one movie every 10 years, maybe he's just assuming he won't feel like doing anything when he's 70

    Super stoked for that PTA movie though

    Might have to give Lincoln a rewatch. Quite liked that one.

    How much you wanna bet that this basically guarantees him that fourth Oscar?

    What? He doesn't want to take it easy and start appearing in comedies with Zac Efron and Ben Stiller?

    Give what you can.

    Watching him play Lincoln was my Star Wars. I hope he enjoys retirement and nobody ever bothers him.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he did another movie with his wife.

    That would be the ultimate career move. "I'm retiring, but my last role will be Bad Grandpa 2"

    This thread just made me realize something... had Ben Stiller done anything in the past 5 years? Has there been a Night In The Museum movie in that time?

    There Will Be Blood will go down as an all time great. Fantastic actor, great career, will be missed greatly.

    A true modern legend. As in, in the times of internet and information overload, there are still "I heard that one time he..." tales of this glorious man.

    Dude had a health scare and got divorced. Zoolander was real disappointing but Young was pretty good

    The Secret Life of Walter Mitty wasn't half bad.
