Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood to Team Up for ‘Westworld’


Fans of Michael Crichton’s 70’s film, ‘Westworld,’ may be excited to find out that a new adapted series is coming to HBO that will be produced by J.J. Abrams and Jerry Weintraub.  The series has been picked up to pilot.  Silence of the Lambs star, Anthony Hopkins is set to star in the series, along with Evan Rachel Wood.  The show is described as, “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.”

Hopkins is set to play Dr. Robert Ford, the brilliant, taciturn and complicated creative director, chief programmer and chairman of the board of Westworld, who has an uncompromising creative vision for the park — and unorthodox methods of achieving it. Wood will portray Dolores Abernathy, the quintessential farm girl of the frontier West — who is about to discover that her entire idyllic existence is an elaborately constructed lie.

This will be Hopkins’ first foray into the small screen- which is becoming all the rage for film stars these days.  (Billy Bob Thornton on Fargo, Halle Berry on Extant, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson on True Detective… ).  

Wood made headlines last month when she and her husband of two years, Jamie Bell, announced their separation.  The two have a 10-month old son.

FIRST LOOK! Anthony Hopkins in character as Alfred Hitchcock!

This transformation is almost shocking! It took me a while to realize this is NOT actually Alfred Hitchcock, but it’s Anthony Hopkins in character as the late director!

Anthony is playing the director in a new movie titled ‘Hitchcock’, which will center around the making of ‘Psycho’. The movie has a bunch of great actors, including Scarlett Johansson, Helen Mirren and Jessica Biel!

Helen will play Alma Reville, Hitch’s wife and the film will focus on their marriage as well.

Can’t wait to see more from this film!!

Hannibal’s back


Sirs Anthony Hopkins and director Ridley Scott are teaming up to bring Hannibal Lecter back to the big screen.

The actor will reprise his cannibalistic serial killer for the fourth time in a second sequel to the 1991 hit film The Silence of the Lambs, for which he won a Best Actor Oscar. Cate Blanchett has been rumored to take over the role of Clarice Starling, after Jodie Foster pulled out to focus on directing Flora Plum.

A spokesperson for film-makers Universal says, “Hopkins and Scott are both very committed. We like what we’ve got, and the revised script is really, really good.”
