Anthony Hopkins joins “The Son” after triumphing with “The Father”

Los Angeles, USA

The actor Anthony Hopkins and the director Florian Zeller, who triumphed together with “The Father” (2020), will once again unite their paths in the belt of “The Son”.

The filmmaker published this message on Instagram in which he announced that the shooting of “The Son” was completed and in which he unveiled the sympathy that Hopkins, winner of the Oscar and best actor for “The Father”, has formed part of the reparto of this brace nueva.

Hugh Jackman, Laura Dern, Vanessa Kirby and Zen McGrath rounded off the cast of “The Son”.

Like “The Father”, “The Son” is also an adaptation to the large screen of one of Zeller’s plays.

In this case, the plot will revolve around depression in adolescence and will narrate the clash between Peter (Jackman) and his ex-wife Kate (Dern) and his wife Nicholas (McGrath) in the middle.

When he announced this new project last April, Zeller announced that “The Son” is a “deeply human” story and trusted that the public would enjoy “the journey of this family”.

“Both Hugh and Laura naturally transmit a great warmth, compassion and vulnerability to invite the audience to embrace and feel every moment”, added the French dramatist and filmmaker.

“The Father”, the opera prima as Zeller’s film director, caused a sensation in the movies with its brilliant and haunting account of a man who suffered from dementia.

Impelled by an impressive puesta en scene, “The Father” was born from the Oscars: best actor for Hopkins -with 83 years became the interpreter of greater age in annotating the statute- and better script adapted for Christopher Hampton and Florian Zeller.

Hopkins won another Hollywood Academy Award for Best Actor for his fascinating and terrifying work in “The Silence of the Lambs” (1991).
