Washington, Mar 25 (ANI): Veteran actor Sir Anthony Hopkins has been signed on to play revered author and adventurer Ernest Hemingway in the new film titled Hemingway and Fuentes.
According to Hollywood Reporter, actor Andy Garcia will not only direct the project, but will also play the role of fishing-boat captain Gregorio Fuentes, who befriended the writer in the last decade of his life, reports Contactmusic.
Fuentes is said to be the inspiration for one of Hemingway's most enduring creations, a grizzled fisherman Santiago in The Old Man and the Sea, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1952.
Oscar winner Annette Bening is in talks to play Hemingway's wife Mary Welsh. (ANI)
