Michael Caine announces that he leaves the action at 88: No one has been making movies that he wants to do

'Best Sellers' will be the latest film by the prolific British actor Michael Caine who has announced at 88 years withdrawing from acting.

In an interview with the radio program 'Kermode and May', Caine has pointed out, among other reasons that "Nobody is making movies you want to do". The actor of 'The Dark Knight' or 'Children of Men' has also made health reasons and the new facet of Him as a writer to leave the interpretative facet of him.

"It's funny that Best Sellers has finished being my last movie, because I have not worked for two years and I have a problem in the spine that affects my legs, so I can not walk well ... and I also wrote a book, a couple years, who were published and were successful, so now I am not actor, I am a writer. It's great, because as an actor you have to get up at six thirty in the morning and go to the studio. As a writer, you start writing Without getting out of bed! "He has affirmed the British.

Famous for its British accent of the East End, Caine has appeared in more than 150 movies throughout his career and is an industry icon. "I think it will be my last movie, yes. The truth is that I have not had any offer for two years, because nobody has been making movies that I want to do. In addition, I am 88 years old. They do not abound precisely the scripts with protagonists who have 88 , You know? "He commented Caine in the interview. However, the truth is that it still needs to reach the 'medieval' cinemas, a historical drama that is being sold as the most expensive film in the history of the Czech Republic and that it was shot before 'Best Sellers'.
