Hopkins and Summit are talking about the “Amistad” actor playing a villain opposite Helen Mirren, Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and John Malkovich in this action comedy.

Other newcomers to the cast include Catherine Zeta-Jones and Byung Hun-Li.

However, Hopkins is committed to another sequel, “Thor 2,” in which he will reprise his role as Thor’s father, Odin.

If the timing can be worked out, the deal should get done.

Hopkins is currently filming “Hitchcock,” Sacha Gervasi’s take on the iconic British director.
