Annette Bening, Anthony Hopkins Join Cast of "Hemingway" for Director Andy Garcia 


Anthony Hopkins and Annette Bening join Andy Garcia in "Hemingway and Fuentes." Garcia will also direct from a script he co-wrote with Hilary Hemingway, Ernest Hemingway's granddaughter.

Variety
tells us, that the drama chronicles the two decades that Hemingway spent in Cuba fishing with his best friend, Gregorio Fuentes. There, the author fell in love with a beautiful Italian girl who inspired him to write "The Old Man and the Sea."

Hopkins will play the author, Garcia will play Fuentes, and Bening will play the author's third wife, Mary Welsh Hemingway.

This film has been a long-gestating passion for Garcia.

“I was specifically most interested in Hemingway’s connection to Cuba, where he spent the last 20 years of his life, and his relationship with his last captain, Gregorio,” Garcia said to Variety. “As an avid fisherman, I got to know older Cuban fisherman who knew Gregorio from the fishing culture of the 40s and 50s, and who would compete in tournaments outside the city of Havana, which was really the beginning of competitive fishing.”

Hopkins recently committed to do the film after he completes "Thor" where he'll play Odin, the King of Asgard and the father of Thor and Loki. (See Anthony Hopkins Joins "Thor")

Garcia wants to make the film next film, taking the production to the Caribbean rim.

I'm Loving the New Trailer of Pedro Almodovar's "Broken Embraces!" 


Penelope Cruz is HOT! There I said it. And the actress looks gorgeous in the new film "Broken Embraces" (Los abrazos rotos) from director Pedro Almodovar.

Cruz stars as Lena, the love of Harry Caine (Lluís Homar), a blind man. 14 years ago, Caine was known as Mateo Blanco, a film director. But a brutal crash left him blind, and now, he lives and loves in darkness.

The trailer for the film not only highlights Almodovar's flair, but also showcases Cruz. The film opens November 20th in the New York area and December 11th in Los Angeles.

Here's the new trailer:
