• Cinema The Great White Shark That Almost Devoured Michael Caine

'Best Sellers' will be the last film by the prolific British actor

Michael Caine

who has announced at the age of 88 that he is retiring from acting.

In an interview with the radio program 'Kermode and Mayo', Caine has pointed out, among other reasons, that

"nobody is making movies that they want to make."

The actor of 'The Dark Knight' or 'Children of Men' has also wielded health reasons and his new facet as a writer to leave his interpretive facet.

"It's funny that

Best Sellers

ended up being my last movie, because I haven't worked for two years and I have a spinal problem that affects my legs, so I can't walk well ... And I also wrote a book, a couple years, which were published and were successful, so

now I'm not an actor, I'm a writer.

It's great, because as an actor you have to get up at half past six in the morning and go to the studio. As a writer, you start writing! without getting out of bed! ", said the Briton.

Famous for his East End British accent, Caine

has appeared in over 150 films

throughout his career and is an industry icon. "I think it will be my last film, yes. The truth is that I have not had any offer for two years, because no one has been making films that I want to do. Besides, I am 88 years old. There are not exactly many scripts with protagonists who are 88 , You know? ", Caine has commented in the interview. However, the truth is that

'Medieval' has

yet to hit theaters

, a historical drama that is being sold as the most expensive film in the history of the Czech Republic and was shot before 'Best Sellers'.

with Laurence Olivier, Paul Newman and Jack Nicholson,

the only actor to have aspired to the Oscars in five different decades and was named


by Queen Elizabeth II in 2000 for his contribution to the performing arts.
