The creative team behind this year's hit thriller HANNIBAL (2001) are to re-unite for a big-budget epic based on the life of the ancient Greek campaigner ALEXANDER THE GREAT.
According to producer DINO DE LAURENTIIS, the film will be directed by RIDLEY SCOTT and scripted by TED TALLY from a trio of historical novels by VALERIO MASSIMO MANFREDI. ANTHONY HOPKINS is tipped to take a role in the movie.
"I would like to have big stars in the secondary roles and get an unknown actor to play the part of Alexander the Great," says De Laurentiis. (HB/WNWCGG/KMW)
