Michael Caine has been in every movie Christopher Nolan has directed since 2005 (by ‘every movie’ I mean Batman Begins, The Prestige and The Dark Knight), so one would assume that he would turn up in Inception, which Nolan will start filming later this year. So far Leonardo DiCaprio, Cillian Murphy, Ellen Page and Marion Cotillard have all been announced, but what about Caine?
“I think there might be a part for me,” Caine told MTV News. Asked if he thought he would be cast in Nolan’s latest movie, described by Warner Bros. only as “a contemporary sci-fi thriller set within the architecture of the mind,” Caine gleamed with optimism.
“I could well be, yes,” the Academy Award-winning actor stated. “I don’t think [Nolan]’s going to make a picture without me.”
“I will know this week if I’m going to be in it,” Cain said.
Recently Michael Caine revealed that he hasn’t accepted a role since completing Harry Brown last year, and then he mentioned the word “retirement”. The thought of Michael Caine no longer appearing in movies is something I’d rather not think about, so Nolan better find a role for him in Inception!
