ANTHONY HOPKINS HAS "SOLACE EYES"! TOPHER GRACE, ZACHARY QUINTO, LUKE WILSON HAVE "THE INVITATION"! ROBERT DE NIRO & MICHAEL DOUGLAS IN "LAST VEGAS"

It seems that years can't do a thing to Anthony Hopkins since he is busier than ever. Beside playing the famous director in ALFRED HITCHCOCK AND THE MAKING OF PSYCHO next to Helen Mirren and Toni Collette, playing Odin in THOR 2 and Pharotu in ARABIAN NIGHTS (with Liam Hemsworth as Ali Baba and Dwayne Johnson as Sinbad), he is also playing a famous writer in HEMINGWAY & FUENTES with Andy Garcia. And now he has  signed on to star in SOLACE EYES, a supernatural thriller in which he will play a doctor with psychic abilities, who hunts down a serial killer.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
One of the projects we've mentioned before, THE LAST VOYAGE OF DEMETER, has finally found its director in Neil Marshall (CENTURION). According to "The Hollywood Reporter", inspired by Bram Stoker's DRACULA, the film is set on Demeter, the ship that transported the vampire from Transylvania to London, except the ship washes up on shore with only one survivor left. This story tells the tale of that voyage, where one passenger murdered the ship's crew,
one by one. Ben Kingsley was previously mentioned for the lead role. "MovieWeb" reports that two brilliant boys Zachary Quinto and Topher Grace have joined Luke Wilson in THE INVITATION where Luke Wilson is invited to his estranged ex-wife's dinner party. Over the course of the evening, he is gripped by mounting evidence that something insidious has taken hold of his ex-wife, and that she and her new friends have a mysterious and horrifying agenda. By the end of the night, the ramifications of what happens in this house will spread far beyond its doors. 

Again, one of the upcoming comedies that I've mentioned before, LAST VEGAS has just signed Robert de Niro, who will join a fellow
Oscar winner Michael Douglas in the cast. Written by the scribe of TANGLED and directed by famous John Turteltaub, the movie will follow four old friends who decide to throw a Las Vegas bachelor party for the only one of them who has remained single. De Niro will play the party-averse Paddy Connelly, who reluctantly agrees to fly to Vegas at the request of his friends. Douglas will play Billy Gerson, a lifelong bachelor, who has finally decided to take the plunge. Warren Beaty and Christopher Walken were mentioned before as possible candidates for the other two roles.

  6. I thought Hopkins had announced once that he was retiring, and yet he's going stronger than ever. He must be having fun. Or he has an ex-wife he owes money to. :P

  8. I've always liked Hopkins. He usually does a good job. But he is getting pretty old, he might want to pace himself a bit!

    I like De Niro too. He can play any kind of role you throw at him. Serious, bad ass, funny! You name it..he can do it! I'm looking forward to Last Vegas!

  10. Wow. I want to see every one of the projects you named that Anthony Hopkins is involved in. As far as Topher and Zachary Quinto...I LOVES ME SOME ZACHARY QUINTO BABY!!! Hells yeah! He's darn close to my favorite actor (DESPITE not being blond). Sometimes ya just gotta go with pure talent (looks aside).

    1. yep, he's not blond, but he sure is gorgeous :) And has some naughty charisma we like about him.

  11. Not sure where Hopkins gets all the energy from but he is still putting out more films then most people half his age and they are usually good too. Last Vegas should be fun, but you never know.

    1. it's true, a lot of older actors are having some kind of revival right now... which is very nice.

    2. Yeah works for me as well. As they aren't some stupid looking Twilight pretty mood that needs a good smack upside the head.

      Delete
    3. Oh, how we would enjoy smacking Twilight and Harry Plopper brats...

    4. Might get thrown in jail though, so better wear a mask or get your penguins to do the dirty work.

  14. I just asked my mom "who is Anthony Hopkins". She then called me a disgrace to society and made me swear never to admit that in public. Too late...

    1. LOL I agree with your mother on this one

    3. yes, Jaxy, my dear, we do like you, but you really are a disgrace to society :PPP

    4. Off course, since you are a general of the Alliance we shall cover this up in public and we shall erase cat since he is the only one who knows about this shame :)

    5. LOL I do know and am very familiar with Robert Dinero. Does that count for bonus points? Thank goodness for the alliance!

      Delete
    6. LOL no you get no bonus points what so ever. Especially being an alliance stooge..lol

    7. Dinero? Haven't heard of that one :P

  15. Michael Douglas, Robert deNiro and Christopher Walken? I'm there!

    Love Topher in that hoodie. Makes him look sexy and intriguing. And Zachary Quinto looks hot no matter what. ;))

  18. Anthony Hopkins is one of the best. I like his The World's Fastest Indian, but most people I've asked have never seen it. I hope De Niro doesn't make too much fun of his career.

    1. I've heard of the title, but have no idea what the film is about. Is it from last century? :P
      It's funny that I like De Niro only in comedy roles.

      Delete
  19. DeNiro and Douglas, have they worked together before?

    ReplyDelete
  20. The Hubby said that the transformation of Hopkins into Hitchcock is incredible and I do want to see this film. I'm not really interested in The Invitation, but Zachary is so nice to look at. His eyes we're meant to be bathed in. Last Vegas looks brilliant to me. Just having those seasoned actors play roles that reflect their age and be comfortable with it, will be a refreshing change from youth obsessed Hollywood

    1. yep, a pic of him as Hitchcock was published a month or so ago and there's no difference between the two of them.
      Hope you are fine darling!
