Sir Michael Caine ‘contemplating retirement if not offered good films’April 28th, 2009 - 2:39 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 28 (ANI): Veteran actor Sir Michael Caine has said that he would retire from films if no more good roles come his way.
Currently, the 76-year-old actor is doing a British film ‘Is Anybody There?’ in which he plays a retired magician, Clarence, who befriends a young boy whose parents run a retirement home.
“I’ve just finished a film called Harry Brown and between that and this I didn’t work for 18 months so you get the impression because this has come out and then I’m talking about Harry Brown, you think: ‘Boy, he’s making films the whole time,’” The Telegraph quoted him as saying.
He added: “I didn’t make a film for 18 months because quite truthfully I didn’t see a script that I wanted to do for 18 moths until Harry Brown came along.
“And now I don’t have a script to do. I have a very small part in Christopher Nolan’s Inception, but that’s just a friendship between he and I, it’s just a couple of days.
“I’m talking about a proper movie that I’m in - I don’t have one. And if one doesn’t come along that I want to do. I will be gone. I will be retired. So that’s how it is with me now.”
In ‘Is Anybody There?’ where Caine co-stars with David Morrissey, Anne-Marie Duff, Bill Millner and Leslie Philips, his character slowly develop dementia. (ANI)
