Prepare to experience some major sparks for Antonio Banderas…
The 51-year-old Spanish actor will next appear in Ruby Sparks, a romantic comedy from directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, who are best known for their work in Oscar-winning movie Little Miss Sunshine.
The film centers on a young geeky novelist named Calvin who finds romance in a most unusual way while struggling with writer’s block: by creating a female character named Ruby that he thinks will love him, then willing her into existence.
When Calvin finds Ruby, in the flesh, sitting on his couch about a week later, he is completely flabbergasted that his words have turned into a living, breathing person.
Paul Dano stars as Calvin, while Zoe Kazan plays Ruby.
Ruby Sparks is set to open in theaters on July 25, 2012.
