Caine Thinks New Alfie Will Be A Hit

MICHAEL CAINE has given his blessing to the remake of ALFIE, but he refuses to be in it.

The movie star says he feels sure that JUDE LAW and SUSAN SARANDON will give his cult 1966 film an interesting revamp, and he can't wait to see it.

But he has decided never to appear in any more remakes after he was ridiculed for taking part in SYLVESTER STALLONE's GET CARTER flop.

He says, "I've given up cameos in remakes. I could do that for the rest of my life. They are remaking everything. I did a cameo in Get Carter, and I don't want to do that again.

"I think this Alfie will be very interesting because it's being rewritten by an American woman in 2003 and the original was about a British womaniser in the 1960s.

"The casting of Susan Sarandon puts a whole other thing on it. It sounds more and more fascinating to me.

"I've given Jude a few tips about talking direct to camera, like I did in the original, and I think he'll do a great job."
