Judi Dench, Anthony Hopkins to star in `Italian Shoes`
Los Angeles: Actress Judi Dench and `The Silence of the Lambs` actor Anthony Hopkins are in talks to star for lead roles in `Italian Shoes`.
The film is directed by Kenneth Branagh and he thinks that Dench and Hopkins are tailor-made for the pair. Branagh has previously worked with both stars, reported Mirror online.
Hopkins starred in director`s `Thor`, while Dench appears alongside him in `My Week with Marilyn` and forthcoming film `J. Edgar`.
The 50-year-old actor-director thinks their casting for `Italian Shoes` takes advantage of his long relationship with the pair.
"The nuance, delicacy and flavour is so based on the perfect casting," Branagh said.
`Italian Shoes` is based on a novel by Swedish author Henning Mankell and will begin shooting in late 2012.
It follows the story of a retired surgeon who resides on a remote island in Sweden before a reunion with an ex-lover forces him to confront his past.
