"Papa." It's the title of a forthcoming movie, for which actor Anthony Hopkins has signed on to star in. The film is to be directed by Roger Donaldson and will be based on Ernest Hemingway's encounter with Denne Bart Petitclerc, a reporter who covered the Korean War, inspired by Hemingway's coverage of the Spanish Civil War.
"Papa" is set in Havana in 1959. It revolves a young journalist searching for a father and family against the backdrop of the Cuban revolution, and how he finds his own "papa" in the drunken, gun-toting Hemingway. Hopkins is set to play the role of Ernest Hemingway.
