It’s been officially confirmed that actor Michael Caine is not retiring. Caine and his reps confirmed that he is not retiring, despite his comments in a recent interview with Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo.
It was thought that Michael Caine’s latest film, Best Sellers, would be his last. However, it looks like we’ll be seeing more of Caine, as he took to Twitter to confirm that he isn’t retiring.

Talks of his retirement sprawled from an interview he gave on BBC radio show, Kermode and Mayo’s Film Review. He said, “Funnily enough, it has turned out to be my last part, really” when talking about his film, Best Sellers. He continued to say “I haven’t worked for two years, and I have a spine problem which affects my leg, so I can’t walk very well.”
The actor also shared details on his perusal of becoming a writer “I’m now not an actor; I’m a writer, which is lovely 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 can start writing without leaving the bed”. Caine has written numerous successful biographies including 2018’s Blowing The Bloody Doors Off.
The British actor, aged 88, is even considering two scripts, according to inside sources. Caine recently starred in Tenet, Twist and King Of Thieves. Caine has a career spanning over 60 years, starring in Alfie, The Italian Job, Zulu, Educating Rita and Little Voice. The acting legend has won two Oscars, thanks to his performances in Hannah and Her Sisters and The Cider House Rules.
Perhaps, he is best known for playing the role of Alfred in The Dark Knight Trilogy, helmed by Christopher Nolan. Caine has had a role in all of Nolan’s films since 2005, including Inception, Interstellar and The Prestige. Caine mentioned that he would happily star in another Nolan film.
Reps confirmed to Variety that Caine isn’t retiring.
