Hopkins Music Fight

SIR ANTHONY HOPKINS is battling with the producers of SILENCE OF THE LAMBS sequel HANNIBAL - over a piece of soundtrack music.

The Welsh star wants a piece of classical music he has composed included on the soundtrack because he thinks it's perfect for a certain scene.

Hopkins, who is an accomplished pianist, reckons the inclusion would be ideal because playing the piano helped him to get into character for the cultured but murderous HANNIBAL LECTER in the first place. (KL/DT/KW)
