In The Father Hopkins plays a man suffering from dementia. The film is based on the play of the same name, also written by Zeller, which premiered in Paris in 2012 and was subsequently shown in more than forty countries. After The Father wrote Zeller in the same series of plays The Mother and The Sono, which is now being filmed.
,,After our cooperation before The Father, I couldn’t make another movie without Anthony,” Zeller said in a statement today. ,,He was the first to write the script of The Sono read, because one of the characters was written especially for him. It was an honor, a blessing and very emotional for him to help us tell this new story.”
In the film adaptation of The Sono Hugh Jackman, Laura Dern and Vanessa Kirby also have major roles. Jackman and Kirby play a couple who have just welcomed a baby when his ex-wife (Dern) suddenly shows up on the doorstep with their teenage son, played by the relatively unknown Zen McGrath. The role Hopkins plays is not yet known.
