Michael Caine has always been one of my all time favorite people in the business. Not only is he an acting legend, but he’s also never shy to give his opinion.
The Dark Knight Rises is one of the most guarded sets in history, and all involved with the production have remained tightlipped in regards to the characters and storyline.
Michael Caine, who was attending the Cars 2 junket this morning, has added more fuel to the fire. When asked about the progress of shooting The Dark Knight Rises for director Christopher Nolan, the man playing Alfred gave away a few hints.
Here is what Michael Caine told Collider.
“I started filming last week and I film next week. As the butler, I do a load of filming at the beginning, and everybody goes off and does all the adventures and they all come home shot to pieces and I patch them together when they all get back. Christopher Nolan, I think, is one of the greatest directors in the world and I’ve been lucky enough…this is my fifth movie with him. It’s such a pleasure to work with him and he’s so clever. We’ve all signed the Official Secrets Act. I’m lucky to be able to tell you the title of the movie. I remember I did an interview and someone said to me, “What are you doing next?” I said, “I’m doing Batman.” I saw Chris and he said, “Why did you tell them you were doing Batman?” I said, “Because I am.” He said, “You’re supposed to keep it secret.” I said, “I couldn’t keep that a secret.” Let me tell you…the plot is extraordinary…really extraordinary. I know why he wants to keep it a secret. You really need not to know till you see the movie.”
The Dark Knight Rises comes to theaters July 20th, 2012 and stars Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The film is directed by Christopher Nolan.
