Anthony Hopkins to tangle with demons in The Rite

Though THE WOLFMAN wound up getting somewhat mixed reviews, I think most walked away appreciating Anthony Hopkins's grand and crazy performance. Will the British thespian bring that same level of menace to his new project THE RITE?

From director Mikael Hafstrom (1408), THE RITE is an adaptation of the book by Matt Baglio said to be based on true events. From THR: "The story centers on a disillusioned American seminary student who attends exorcism school at the Vatican and ultimately finds his faith through encounters with demonic forces." Hopkins will play a priest who's forte is exorcising demons using unorthodox methods.

Hopkins will next be seen in Woody Allen's YOU WILL MEET A TALL DARK STRANGER later this year, and then THOR in 2011.

I'm more thinking (and yes, I know this is horrible), "Why is Anthony Hopkins still alive?" He's a great actor, but dammit, the man seems like he should be retiring, not upping his workload. Ageism on my part, I know. But I find it more interesting when older actors only do one project in a year or two, so that you can appreciate just how good they are.

While, Anthony Hopkins is a phenomenal actor and more than less picks his movies carefully...

Am I the only one seeing the success of Paranormal Activity bringing in a wave of demon/exorcism films like Underworld and Twilight have done for vampires and werewolves?
