Michael Caine Talks Harry Brown

Michael Caine tells MTV News that he’s going all vigilante for his recently announced “Harry Brown”.

The story follows an elderly man driven to vigilante justice in a London neighborhood taken over by criminals. Emily Mortimer also stars as a police officer.

Caine says of his role “He’s an ex-Marine who lives on a real crap estate in London full of junkies and pimps and hookers. And he becomes a vigilante because he has to or else they’re going to kill him.”

Don’t expect too much physical action considering Caine’s age – “The guy is old and has emphysema but he is an ex-Marine and you get to know that. He’s in his late 70s and he doesn’t want to fight. He’s not exactly a powerhouse but he does start to bring it around.”
