Hopkins & Hemingway

03.25.2009

Anthony Hopkins Anthony Hopkins has, for the time being, agreed to star as Ernest Hemingway in an upcoming biopic directed by Andy Garcia titled HEMINGWAY & FUENTES. Garcia co-wrote the script with the niece of Hemingway, Hilary Hemingway, in a story centering on Hemingway's friendship with Cuban fishing-boat captain Gergorio Fuentes. Hemingway spent a lot of time fishing in Cojimar, Cuba in the last decade of his life, and became great friends with Fuentes during this time. Fuentes is even said to be the basis for Hemingway's Pulitzer Prize winning novel "The Old Man and the Sea". Garcia hopes to co-star alongside Hopkins as Fuentes with Annette Bening possibly starring as Hemingway's wife Mary Welsh. The film is in the early stages of development right now so there's no start date or release as yet. Read more about it over HERE.

No No No

Good actor, but too old, too soft, too paunchy.

Tom Selleck would be perfect: craggy good looks, right age, right macho qualities, and a sympathetic, laconic, under-rated actor.

Tony Hopkins is already quite a bit older than Hemingway was when he died, but he's also a beast of an actor, so I expect him to pull off something stellar. Except..

Wasn't James Gandolfini attached to a Hemingway project?

What, is it going to be Capote all over again?
