ANTHONY HOPKINS has moved up in the world since making THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS - he's progressed to sheep.
The Oscar-winning actor has sealed a deal to star in DISNEY's BLACK SHEEP, where he'll play a veteran CIA agent who heads an operation with a secret agent who is killed. American comedian CHRIS ROCK who plays the agent and his twin brother, is brought in to substitute for his dead twin to finish the investigation.
Hopkins has just finished work on HANNIBAL, the long awaited sequel to SILENCE OF THE LAMBS. The movie is set to hit American cinema screens next month(FEB01). (LE/HR/KW)
