Hollywood veteran Michael Caine is planning to write a novel after he completes the next Batman film.
The-77-year-old Oscar-winner says he is sick of lawyers telling him that he cannot write about certain things in his autobiography and wants freedom as a writer.
Caine just released his second autobiography The Elephant to Hollywood, and he has promised his fans that his next book will be a work of fiction, Entertainment Weekly reported.
"I love writing so much that once I'm finished with Batman, I'm going to write fiction.
"When I was writing my first book, I talked with Kirk Douglas, who had written one of his own. I told him that the lawyers were always saying, 'You can't say that or you'll get sued'. He said to me, 'Write fiction, Michael. You can tell the truth.' Isn't that a great line?"
The actor, best known for his performances in Alfie, The Italian Job, Hannah and Her Sisters, The Cider House Rules and Batman franchise, has appeared in over hundred Hollywood films.
His most recent role was Leonardo DiCapiro's mentor in Christopher Nolan's heist movie Inception.
