Anthony Hopkins May Play Papa

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.

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.
