Anthony Hopkins to Play Sigmund Freud in ‘Freud’s Last Session’

A roundup

Two-time Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins is set to star as Sigmund Freud in a new project launching in the Cannes market.

Freud’s Last Session is being directed Matthew Brown (The Man Who Knew Infinity), working from a script by Mark St. Germain (The God Committee) and adapted from his play of the same title.

“Beyond my own intellectual curiosity and inclination towards this piece, there is a deep recognition of how incredibly timely and important this film is,” said Brown.

Freud’s Last Session

I want to make a film for all audiences that is emotional, thought-provoking and creative. A film that asks the big questions, while investigating what is at the heart of the human condition: love, faith and mortality.”
