Paltrow and Hopkins Confirmed for King Lear

Talk about an all-star cast! Anthony Hopkins was just confirmed to play King Lear. But don't expect a modern twist on the Shakespearean tragedy, Hopkins says he's "not very fond of the modern adaptations."

Director Joshua Michael Stern also confirmed that Gwyneth Paltrow, Naomi Watts and Keira Knightley would star in the movie as Lear's three daughters. Can't wait!
