So, Anthony Hopkins will get naughty again. According to "MovieWeb" he is currently negotiating to play a villain in Chuck Russell's exotic adventure "Arabian Nights". Anthony Hopkins will play Pharotu, an evil sorcerer who killed Sinbad's love, a mermaid, and is looking to amass more magic for himself. As we have already reported, young Liam Hemsworth, the brother of Chris "Thor" Hemsworth, will play a young commander who, after his king is murdered in a coup, joins forces with Sinbad, Ali Baba and the Genie from the magic lamp to rescue the queen, Scheherazade. The shooting of this oriental epic should begin later this summer and the film will premier in 2011.
