Hopkins to Play Hemingway

Anthony Hopkins Yahoo has it that Anthony Hopkins has signed on to play Ernest Hemingway in an upcoming film titled "Papa." The film is to be directed by Roger Donaldson ("The Recruit," "Thirteen Days.") and will explore the interaction between Hemingway and Denne Bart Petitclerc. Petitclerc was a reporter who covered the Korean War, inspired by Hemingway's coverage of the Spanish Civil War.

Interestingly enough, Petitclerc ended up going into screenwriting, scribing for "Bonanza." He is also listed as a producer for "Papa." More inspiration for you screenwriters out there, if you cover the a War, then watch a literary giant spiral to his self slaughter, then create an hit TV show, then someday you can make a movie about yourself. --Terrence Ryan
