Anthony Hopkins Has The Rite to Exorcise Demons

Anthony Hopkins Has The Rite to Exorcise DemonsMan, it hasn't been this hot for the Devil in Hollywood since the Seventies! Yet another big screen tale of demonic possession is readying production, this one with Sir Anthony Hopkins fixing to serve up a side of eucharists to go along with his fava beans and fine chianti.

According to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision Blog, Hopkins has been signed to play the part of an unconventional exorcist in director Mikael (1408) Hafstrom's The Rite.

Based upon a book by Matt Baglio, which of course was based on "true events", The Rite centers on a disillusioned American seminary student who attends exorcism school at the Vatican and ultimately finds his faith through encounters with demonic forces.

Exorcism school? Where the hell was that when I was trying to figure out what to do with my life after high school? More soon.

IMO Anthony Hopkins has entered into the realm of corny self-parody at this point, much like like DeNiro and Pacino.

I'm always down for the Devil though. I'm a Softy For Satan! So I say "POSSESS ME!"

Oh god, he'd probably be great at this . . . He's good at playing crazy people. Call me intrigued.
