British actor SIR ANTHONY HOPKINS is set to play a CIA boss in a $113 million (£75 million) comedy-thriller.
The 63-year-old will star alongside American comedian CHRIS ROCK in the JOEL SCHUMACHER directed movie BLACK SHEEP, which starts shooting in Prague soon. Black Sheep's executive producer, MATTHEW STILLMAN, says, "It's a fish-out-of-water comedy with a difference. This is one film shoot that promises to be a hoot."
Hopkins will portray a hardman who has to transform a dumb lowlife (Chris Rock) into a top agent, in a bid to foil an international conspiracy. (NQ/WNSEX/KW)
