According to this interview with Anthony Hopkins, promoting his latest feature “Fracture”, the announced Tolstoy biopic “The Last Station” with him and Meryl Streep in the leads, has lost its stars.

Q: Are you going to play Tolstoy?
A: No, that all fell through. I don’t know what happened to that. They postponed and it was going and then I said, “Look, I’ve got to get on with my life.” I think Meryl Streep was going to do it and I think she pulled out of it basically because it was on and then it was off.

“Bob’s restless spirit has moved on – I have to say, when I spoke with him last week, he seemed impatient for the future. He still had the generous, optimistic appetite for the next thing, and we planned the next film laughing in anticipation of the laughs we’d have. What a gent, what a guy, what a great heart. There’s no one like him and we’ll miss him so.” – Meryl Streep
