With one movie opening last week in limited release ("Last Love"), riding high off this summer's hit "Now You See Me," and currently filming "Interstellar" with old pal Christopher Nolan, there's no stopping 80 year-old Michael Caine. And the ever-busy actor has just signed up for two more movies.

First off, he'll be teaming up with acclaimed Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino ("Il Divo," the forthcoming "The Great Beauty") for his next effort, "In The Future." What's it about? Well, as Variety notes details are under wraps for the moment, but lensing is expected to begin early next year for a 2015 release, and we can only imagine yet another Cannes Film Festival premiere for Sorrentino, whose last few movies have all screened there. And while we wait for more information about that movie, Caine's next one is almost too mind-boggling to believe.

The actor, who has refined the art of serving eccentric rich benefactors across three movies as Alfred in "The Dark Knight" trilogy, will once again master the fine art of tea pouring for "Harry And The Butler." Penned by Damian F. Slattery, co-starring Samuel L. Jackson and set to be directed by George C. Wolfe ("Nights In Rodanthe," "Lackawanna Blues"), this one is about... Well, just read the whole logline: 

HARRY AND THE BUTLER is the story of Harry (Sam Jackson), a one-time jazz virtuoso living in New Orleans who has given up on his dreams and now spends his days as the mechanic for a derelict rollercoaster and his nights in his makeshift home – a converted train caboose.  When his former mentor bequeaths him a large sum of money, Harry – in a drunken celebration –decides to hire himself an aging, down-on-his-luck English butler (Michael Caine) – an act of impetuous generosity that changes their lives forever.

We've done a lot of things in a drunken stupor, but hiring butlers isn't one of them. Clearly, we've been doing it wrong. Filming begins next Spring in Louisiana.
