According to Al Pacino, award-winning director Christopher Nolan is "miffed" with him after he turned down a role in one of his earlier films

Al Pacino says Christopher Nolan is "miffed" with him.

The 74-year-old actor explained that he's not being offered a role in a Nolan-directed film since he declined the chance to appear in one of them.

Pacino told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "He hasn't offered me a film in a while, you know why?

"He asked me to be in this movie and I didn't do it. I think that might have miffed him a little bit, but I'm being presumptuous myself."

Pacino starred in Nolan's 2002 thriller 'Insomnia', but refused to reveal which film he turned down.

By contrast, Sir Michael Caine said last week that he considers Nolan to be his "lucky charm".

The pair have worked together on six films - including 'Inception' and the 'Batman' franchise - and Caine, 81, hailed the achievements of his collaborator during 'A Night Out With... Sir Michael Caine' at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

When he was asked what people can expect from their new sci-fi movie 'Interstellar', Caine told BANG Showbiz: "Fans can expect something entirely different from what we've done before like Inception and Batman.

"Take my word for it, the film is going to be extraordinary."

He added: "It's no surprise to me because I think Nolan is the best British director since David Lynne."
