Michael Caine routinely threatens retirement, and there’s always the possibility that his next film will be his last (especially after the actor turned 80 last week; read our pick of his best performances here), but frankly we don’t see it coming any time soon, nor can we imagine him ever saying no to Christopher Nolan. As well as Louis Leterrier‘s “Now You See Me,” Caine has Sandra Nettelbeck‘s (“Mostly Martha,” “Helen“) “Mr. Morgan’s Last Love” set for release in 2013, and now we have some new posters, images and one very interesting new update about the project.
That interesting update is that Hans Zimmer will be providing the score for the German director’s picture. So that’s another to add to Zimmer’s 2013 scored movies which also includes “Winter’s Tale,” “Rush,” “The Lone Ranger” and “Man of Steel.” The new images from the movie, meanwhile, show a lot of Caine and his co-star Clemence Poesy standing around chin-wagging, as well as a couple of looks at Gillian Anderson and Justin Kirk.
Caine will star as a lonely American widower in the film (we can’t wait to hear his accent!) who learns to love life again after a chance meeting with a young woman (Poesy) while living in Paris. As of yet the film only has a German release slated, but we wouldn’t bet against it getting a domestic release before the year’s out. [Film Music Reporter/Kinopoisk]
