Anthony Hopkins is an Evil Sorcerer in "Arabian Nights"

Anthony Hopkins is an Evil Sorcerer in "Arabian Nights"Submit Comment
Anthony Hopkins is in final negotiations to play the villain in "Arabian Nights," an action-adventure movie directed by Chuck Russell (The Scorpion King).

Written by Russell and Barry P. Ambrose, the period epic centers on a young commander (Liam Hemsworth) who, after his king is murdered in a coup, joins forces with Sinbad, Ali Baba and the Genie from the magic lamp to rescue the queen, Scheherazade.

Hopkins will play Pharotu, an evil sorcerer who killed Sinbad's love, a mermaid, and is looking to amass more magic for himself. An end-of-summer shoot is being eyed.

Jake Gyllenhaal and Liam Hemsworth both can pass as arabians? The muslims are more similar to us than I ever thought...

Good for Sinbad banging a mermaid, even though I thought mermaids prefered fishsticks

@freudian
eh man, the muslims are normal people like you and me, no need to say that stuff.
they belive in something they want to believe and they come in all races and ethnicities.
sorry dude, i just get touchy on religious beliefs

Dragonball Evolution was the worst movie of 2009. How could those actors not realize they were making a steaming pile of dog sh*t?

@anchorman: No worries dude, but I was just being sarcastic. Sarcasm sometimes translates very poorly in written text.

@Freudian, do you like fish sticks? Do you like fish sticks in your mouth? What are you, a gay fish? Hahaha I amuse myself

I have a (true) Hopkins story...

He was in an area (close to hear) filming.
He had some time off (the day off I'll gather).
Walked through a small town where a guy was working on his garden. Sir Tony struck up a conversation with the guy. They both had an interest in gardening. The guy invites Sir Anthony in for tea. While they're having tea, the guy's wife comes home, and the husband says: 'Hi Honey... this is Tony.' The wife's just stood there stunned. Tony had to go, thanked the gentleman for tea and left. The husband commented what a nice guy he was. The wife smacked his and asked: 'Don't you know who that what?!' He replied: 'Yeah... Tony' She smacked him, then filled him in on the details.

I thought that was kind of a sweet story.

Ive always thought that, hopkins looks like he should have been a gardener..

Thats a pretty cool story man.. I like sh*t like that... Hopkins seems like a pretty cool mofo... crazy that the guy wouldnt have recognized him as Lecter at the very least... but either way cool story...
Ranger writes:
on May 10th, 2010 at 2:56:43 PM

Thx. trig.

He's a rarity in the biz. No ego. Likes everyone on sets to call him Tony (like that would happen). I'll watch anything that man is in 'til the day he passes.

meh ...

also muslims suck. sorry @nchor that's how i feel they're f*cking crazy murderers ...

Ouch encore... really? Muslims have crazy folk in their ranks just at the Catholics do (or any other religion). How about those 'Baptists' picketing private family (and yet) Military funerals. I'll tell you what I'd do with their signs.

As for the priests diddling kids. Hey... when you have that kind of spare time...

Ranger- i know many of them are probably peaceful, but i know that a f*ck load of them are in support to terrorism. true other religions got the maniacs, but Muslim religion probably has the bulk of them. if you got evidence to tell me otherwise, great i'd love to hear it.

i know that "sounds" kinda snotty sorry please don't take it that way not how i meant it.
Ranger writes:

True a lot of terrorists are Muslims. But they still represent a very small part of the religion. It's just those few get a LOT of press (from the white media). I don't disagree. Just saying that the squeaky wheels gets the grease. And terrorists get a lot of grease.
encoreyourface writes:
on May 10th, 2010 at 8:29:38 PM

makes since. i'm not saying they are all terrorists, just that a lot of other Muslims support the terrorists.

muslims are peaceful people...depends on which side ur talking about.
my uncle converted to islam (sunni side) and its all about peace and faith.all those extremists are from the SHI'Ite part.
i was thinking about converting, its really beautiful once you read up on it.
lol @encore nah understandable. the press are manipulating bastards, like james cameron. they show one thing, and then another, and leave the viewer to decide what it is.
but the shiites are the ones that do the most violence..sh*t heads
