Hopkins' Hemingway Dreams Are Dead
SIR ANTHONY HOPKINS' dreams of playing revered novelist ERNEST HEMINGWAY on the big screen have been dashed - the film won't happen.
Movie-maker ROGER DONALDSON had tentatively signed Hopkins to play the writer in PAPA, and recently visited Hemingway's Havana, Cuba home and met Cuban leader FIDEL CASTRO to research the project - but now he insists the film won't go ahead.
The COCKTAIL director says, "There's nothing happening there. It was just an idea - and I don't think it's going to happen now."
