Sir Anthony Hopkins, 83, will play Freud in an adaptation of Freud’s last session, a play by Mark St. Germain, an American playwright and author. The play was created in 2009. The film, to be directed by Matt Brown (“The Man who knew infinity”), is based around a debate about the existence of God with C.S. Lewis, a role that Hopkins himself had portrayed in “Shadowlands” 1993, directed by Richard Attenborough.
Shooting is set to begin at the end of this year.
