Four Actors Tapped to Star in Zemeckis' "Beowulf"

by | June 15, 2005 | Comments

Variety reports that a quartet of well-known performers have been invited to star in Robert Zemeckis‘ upcoming adaptation of "Beowulf." Ray Winstone ("King Arthur"), Anthony Hopkins ("Hannibal"), Brendan Gleeson ("28 Days Later"), and Robin Wright Penn ("Unbreakable") "would be committing to a process that is more like a regular movie than the voiceover work commonly done for 3-D animated films," as the technology-happy Mr. Zemeckis is planning to deliver a "Beowulf" presentation not unlike "The Polar Express."

Also of particularly exciting note is that the screenplay for this project was written by the unlikely team of Roger Avary ("Pulp Fiction," "The Rules of Attraction") and Neil Gaiman ("Neverwhere" and the upcoming "MirrorMask"). More info on this rather intriguing project as soon as it’s made available…
