Film veteran Morgan Freeman refuses to retire at the age of 68, because he feels he is producing his best ever work.

The Oscar-winner has just signed on to star in an untitled World War II project, as well as Steve Bing's comedy drama HARRY AND THE BUTLER, which will see him working well into 2006.

Freeman explains, "I keep being asked if I'm going to slow down, but I don't see any reason to. I feel like I'm probably just reaching my stride.

"Life doesn't offer you promises whatsoever so it's very easy to become, 'Whatever happened to...?'

"It's great to be wanted. I spent a few years not being wanted and this is better."
