Empire Online reports that Paul Walker (Into the Blue) is joining Anthony Hopkins in the Ernest Hemingway project Papa, based on the author's fatherly relationship with a young man who is inspired to climb the career ladder by Hemingway’s writing. Cocktail helmer Roger Donaldson has been replaced as director by the RSC's guru, Adrian Noble, who'll be making his debut.
