  Hope the new year is going well for everyone!!!

  I saw an interview with Paul Walker and he said he was getting ready to do the film with Hopkins.  Walker is not a very good actor in my opinion but hes big at the box office and a big name sells.

Another tidbit about "Papa" the movie:

Films like "The Fast and the Furious" may give the impression that Paul Walker is more of a gear-head than a literary scholar, but now the actor has signed on to "Papa," an upcoming film that will star Anthony Hopkins as one of Walker's favorite authors, Ernest Hemingway. "When I grew up, [Hemingway] was required reading in junior high and high school," the 32-year-old star recently said. Set to film later this year and co-starring Meg Ryan, the drama will tell the true story of a young writer (Walker) who befriends Papa in 1959, discovering an unlikely father figure. "As soon as I know [a script is based on] a true story, I don't know what it is, it just grabs me," he said. "What happened to this guy and his life, and ultimately being mentored by Hemingway and what he saw, what his expectations were. To actually sit down with the guy who wrote the project and have him say, 'Yeah, this really happened just the way I wrote it,' I'm going, 'Wow.' A lot of people like to think their lives are fascinating, that they've done some pretty cool things ... but that doesn't hold a candle to this guy's life and what he experienced. That's why I wanted to make it." Walker expects to begin shooting the flick later this year. ...

Not sure how this affects the project "Papa"...

^Denne Bart Petitclerc, adapted Hemingway book to film, dies in LA<
¶   LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Denne Bart Petitclerc, whose letter to Ernest
Hemingway in the 1950s yielded an invitation to go fishing and a
friendship that included adapting ``Islands in the Stream'' for the
screen, has died. He was 76.
¶   Petitclerc, a former journalist who created the 1969-70
television series ``Then Came Bronson,'' died Feb. 3 at UCLA
Medical Center of complications from lung cancer, said his wife,
¶   ``He was a master at translating, keeping the essence of
Hemingway's attitudes and ideas but framing them into lines that an
actor could speak on the screen,'' said Peter Bart, editor in chief
of Variety and a producer of the 1977 film ``Islands in the
¶   He was born May 15, 1929, in Montesano, Wash., to Edmund
Petitclerc and the former Grace Myers.
¶   When he was 5, his father took him to a Seattle department
store, ostensibly to see the angel atop the store's Christmas tree.
His father told him to watch the angel and that he would be right
back, but he never returned.
¶   As a screenwriter, Petitclerc wrote stories with a strong
father-son bond ``because he had no idea what that was like,'' his
wife said.
¶   His final screenplay, ``Papa,'' in preproduction at the time of
his death, is based on his own life and tells the story of a young
journalist who finds a father figure in Hemingway against the
backdrop of the Cuban revolution.
¶   The relationship began when Petitclerc, working as a young
reporter at the Miami Herald, was irritated by a review that said
Hemingway's only contribution to the English language was short
¶   He wrote Hemingway in Havana to tell him he disagreed, and to
thank him for his help in learning creative writing. Petitclerc had
practiced writing by copying Hemingway's novels longhand.
¶   Petitclerc thought it was a joke when Hemingway called the
newsroom a week later, saying he had written a good letter and
inviting him to fish in Cuba.
¶   On one of their fishing trips, Hemingway mentioned an unfinished
book he thought would make a great movie: ``Islands in the
Stream,'' which was finally published nine years after his death in
¶   Hemingway's widow, Mary, asked Petitclerc to do the film
adaptation, Wanda Petitclerc said.
¶   While working for the San Francisco Chronicle, Petitclerc wrote
his first script, for ``Bonanza.'' ``Then Came Bronson,'' the
series he created for NBC, was about a motorcycle-riding former
reporter trying to find the meaning of life.
¶   He also helped write several episodes of ``The High Chaparral,''
which aired from 1967-71, and the novels ``Rage of Honor'' (1966)
and ``Le Mans 24'' (1971), and ``Destinies'' (1981), which he
co-wrote with Bart.
¶   Besides Wanda, his wife of 35 years, he is survived by their
son, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. He is also
survived by three daughters and a son from a previous marriage.

Not sure it's worth anything, but results from Pimlico indicate Hemingway's Key, owned by Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, came in third ("To Show") in the Preakness.

Hoping this means he gets to go on to the Kentucky Derby, and not be gelded.

This gives me hope, as I was going to post a rant about how papa is so out of style and the fact that authors as un-Hemingway as Truman Capote get movies made and win Academy Awards, but Papa gets nada.
