Antonio Banderas is saving the best for Last Girlll.
The 61-year-old British singer has signed on to star in Jon Keeyes’ thriller The Last Girl for Yale Entertainment, which will head into production in Ireland this summer.
Written by Charles Burnley, the film stars Eve, who plays a private investigator forced into a dangerous alliance with a killer (Hennig) in order to uncover a quiet town’s grisly criminal underbelly and clear the name of her mentor (Banderas), who is implicated in the crimes.
Jordan Yale Levine, Jordan Beckerman, and Michael J. Rothstein are producing for Yale Entertainment, along with Richard Bolger and Conor Barry from Hail Mary Pictures, and Richard Clabaugh.
Banderas’ decades-long career has spanned stage and screen, in both the United States and his native Spain. He’s a frequent collaborator of iconic Spanish writer-director Pedro Almodóvar, who has starred in a number of his most notable titles, including Pain and Glory, for which he won the Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival, also landing an Academy Award nomination in the same category. He can currently be seen starring with Penelope Cruz in the Spanish comedy Official Competition, is set to return as the voice of Puss in Boots in Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, and next year stars in the highly anticipated fifth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise.
