Sir Anthony Hopkins to reprise Hannibal Lecter roleMay 15th, 2009 - 2:26 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 15 (ANI): Welsh actor Sir Anthony Hopkins is all set to reprise his role as the legendary cannibalistic serial killer Hannibal Lecter.
It has been 18 years since he won a Best Actor Oscar for in recognition of his performance in ‘Silence Of The Lambs’, and now at the age of 71, he is set to make a return for the fourth time.
Hopkins had also played the part of the brilliant psychiatrist and murderer in 2001’s Hannibal, and the 2002 prequel Red Dragon.
Sir Ridley Scott, who had directed Hannibal, will be making a return, but Hopkins’ co-star Jodie Foster, 46, who also won an Oscar as FBI agent Clarice Starling, will not.
The actresses, who are in consideration for the role of Starling, include 39-year-old Cate Blanchett.
“The script is really, really good,” the Daily Express quoted filmmakers Universal as saying. (ANI)
