Anthony Hopkins to tangle with demons in 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.
