The Hollywood Reporter’s Risky Business Blog says it’s possible Anthony Hopkins will play Ernest Hemingway in Hemingway & Fuentes, an upcoming indie film to be directed and co-written by Andy Garcia.
Garcia, who also will produce via his CineSon Entertainment banner, is co-penning the script with Hilary Hemingway, a screenwriter and author and the niece of Ernest Hemingway. The movie will revolve around the relationship between Hemingway and his longtime fishing-boat captain Gregorio Fuentes.The Risky Business piece is here.
Annette Bening also could come aboard the project, Garcia said, in the role of Hemingway's wife and widow Mary Welsh.
Instead of functioning as a biopic, “Hemingway & Fuentes” will take the form of a historical drama, centering on the final, troubled chapter in Hemingway's dramatic life.
