London (ANI): Sir Michael Caine has revealed that he unwittingly
predicted the 9/11 terror attacks in a novel he was writing prior
to the events of September 2001. However, he stopped writing the
novel after the 9/11 attacks.
"I had this plot where terrorists fly a plane into a London
skyscraper. Then they did it in real life. I was stunned by that,
so I stopped writing," the BBC quoted him as saying. The
77-year-old was speaking ahead of the publication of his
autobiography, 'The Elephant to Hollywood".
The veteran actor revealed he still hoped to write a novel and
hoped to do so prior to his 80th birthday in 2013. It would be a
thriller about terrorism - the sort of thing I read all the time.
It'll be for guys. It won't be a great literary effort," the
two-time Oscar recipient concluded.
