Aw, poor Mr. Caine! But perhaps catching a snooze in an abandoned attic without telling anyone isn’t the smartest of decisions.
While filming Robin Hood-esque caper Now You See Me in New Orleans recently, Iconic British actor Michael Caine took a nap-break in his attic dressing room…
And woke up to find himself in the dark, sans cell-phone, completely locked in!
One on-set insider recalls:
"It had been a long day of filming, and Michael decided to slip upstairs to a makeshift dressing area and catch 40 winks. Unfortunately, he was asleep for some time and failed to hear directors calling a wrap. Production all assumed he was safely outside in his trailer and therefore locked up for the night. His mobile phone was in his trailer, and there was no electricity in the attic, meaning he couldn't see a thing. It was pitch black. Michael started shouting for help, but no one could hear him."
Luckily the disgruntled actor was found the next morning, unharmed and obviously not in the best of moods.
Now you see him, now you don’t!
**UPDATE**: Michael Caine has taken to his Twitter account to DENY the story:
Just read another story about me being locked in attick, completely false. Do not believe everything you read. Do not know where this story came from. Everyone who has published this story has been tricked. Its completely untrue. Have a Great weekend.
