Just when you thought Sir Michael Caine was riding off into the cinematic sunset, he's pulling off a surprise encore that's leaving us all amazed!
Not too long ago, the iconic actor hinted at retirement after his upcoming film "The Great Escaper" - his first since the pandemic struck. At 90, he candidly quipped to The Telegraph, "I am bloody 90 now, and I can't walk properly and all that." Yet, the man known for his on-screen charisma and cheeky wit had us guessing, leaving a door open for future roles.
Fast forward to today, and guess what? Caine has donned a brand-new hat! He's set to play none other than Charles Darwin in an upcoming film slated to start shooting in January. But this time, he insists he's serious about retirement... mostly.
In an interview with The Guardian, Caine declares, "Yeah, I play Charles Darwin. And that'll be it. I won't do another one after." When pressed on his certainty, he chuckles and says, "No! But the point is, can you do it? Can you remember all the lines? He then lets us in on his newfound joy in "semi-retirement": "I've gotten used to not working, staying in bed till 11 am, and staying out late at night. I love it."
