Jack Black says retirement after Jumanji: The Next Level is 'FAKE news': I'm only getting started

During the promotions of the upcoming Hollywood movie, Jumanji: The Next Level, which also stars Dwayne The Rock Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillian, and Nick Jonas, Black expressed interest in retiring from movies. In a conversation with Balance, The Holiday star revealed he was considering early retirement.

 
Following his statement, rumors spread like wildfire suggesting that Jumanji: The Next Level is probably going to be the star's last movie. However, Black has made it loud and clear that he is not going anywhere. Entertainment Tonight reported that the actor was heard addressing the viral rumor and clarified that the news was "fake."
 
"I'm not retiring. I'm not going anywhere. I'm only getting started," he said in a video captured by a paparazzi. In the previous interview, Black had revealed he was probably going to do one more movie before he raises a toast to Hollywood and retires. "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," he told in the interview to Balance.
 
"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 jinxed. 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 said. "I’m not a big five-year plan kind of guy though. I don’t really look down the road. I kind of take it day by day. And if something comes up, you know, obviously if [Quentin] Tarantino comes a-knocking, I’m gonna do that movie!" he added.
