Anthony Hopkins Will Take Part In Hannibal Prequel

Welsh actor SIR ANTHONY HOPKINS will replay his most famous role in a SILENCE OF THE LAMBS prequel - if the script is as good as the other two.

The actor is delighted with the new sequel to his original Oscar winning role, and thinks the public will love HANNIBAL when it hits theatres in February (14FEB01).

And he's open to going back in time with his cannibalistic creation again in prequel RED DRAGON - as long as the script remains great. He says, "Well, it started out as a rumour, but there's a bit of truth. Will I do it? Yes, if the script it good." (SVD/WN/NFA)
