The Hollywood Reporter recently said Tarantino was in talks with New Line Cinema to make another in the series featuring "Jason Voorhees," the killer in a hockey mask who first showed up on theater screens in 1980.
EW reported Tarantino -- in London during the weekend to accept an Icon of the Decade award from the British movie magazine Empire -- told the magazine he had spoken with New Line, but had not agreed to do the picture.
"What's happening with 'Friday the 13th?' Nothing at all," said Tarantino. "It's a complete lie. I like Jason and everything, but I've no intention of directing a movie."
Tarantino, 41, said he'd like to make films for 15 more years.
"I'm not going to be this old guy that keeps cranking them out," he said. "My plan is to have a theater by that time in some small town and I will be the manager -- this crazy old movie guy. I've made enough money that nobody even needs to show up at the theater. It's just having something to do."
