Bob Hoskins Planning To Retire?

Bob Hoskins is thinking about retiring.

The 67-year-old actor - who is currently starring in British movie 'Made in Dagenham', based on the true life story of women in the 1960s striking for equal pay at a car factory - admits he is constantly thinking about retiring from his profession but keeps finding new work.

Speaking on the red carpet at the movie's world premiere at the Odeon Leicester Square, Bob told BANG Showbiz: "I've been trying to retire for the past two years. I'm still thinking about it, very strongly."

However, despite his retirement plans, he does believe he would be willing to work on a follow-up to 1988's 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit' with director Robert Zemeckis.

He said: "They want to do it in the same format but when I met Zemeckis he said, 'Yeah we're gonna do it like this,' I said, 'Yeah, but I'm 67 now, a bit old,' he said, 'Yeah, but the way we're going to do it...' They want to do it in the same format as 'Christmas Carol', well that looks like a cartoon. But yeah, I'm up for it."

Discussing being the male lead in 'Made in Dagenham' among so many women - including Jaime Winstone, Sally Hawkins and Miranda Richardson - Bob added: "They are some of the best actresses in England. You've got Sally Hawkins, who is brilliant. Her performance in this is very astonishing."

'Made in Dagenham' is released in the UK on October 1, ahead of a worldwide release in the US and Israel in November.
