Anthony Hopkins and Ian McKellen will team together for the first time in Starz’s adaptation of Ronald Harwood’s classic play The Dresser, the network announced at the Television Critics Association’s winter TV previews.

Based on Harwood’s own experiences as a dresser for the distinguished British actor Sir Donald Wolfit, the movie is set against the backdrop of World War II. Hopkins (Silence of the Lambs, Thor) will portray Sir, while McKellen (Lord of the Rings, X-Men) will play his dresser, Norman.
