Unfortunately, this means that Snow White and the Huntsman will be his final film. The decision to retire was based on his diagnoisis of Parkinson's last fall.

From his agent:
Bob Hoskins wishes to announce that he will be retiring from acting, following his diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease last autumn. He wishes to thank all the great and brilliant people he has worked with over the years, and all of his fans who have supported him during a wonderful career. Bob is now looking forward to his retirement with his family, and would greatly appreciate that his privacy be respected at this time.
