Antonio Banderas to Star in the Action-Crime Thriller “Clean Up Crew”

Antonio Banderas is cleaning up

The 61-year-opld will star opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Melissa Leo in the Yale Entertainment action-crime thriller Clean Up Crew from director Jon Keeyes.

Antonio BanderasThe Ireland-based production recently wrapped, and Yale’s recently-launched sales banner Great Escape, led by Nick Donnermeyer, will handle foreign rights and introduce the title at next month’s Toronto Film Festival.

The film follows a crime scene clean-up crew, which includes Rhys Meyers and Leo’s characters, who discover a briefcase full of cash, unknowingly sending them into battle with mobsters – led by a ruthless crime boss, played by Banderas, as well as hitmen, and corrupt government agents who are hell bent to get the dough back.

Clean Up Crew was written by Matthew Rogers.

“We’re excited to work with this legendary all-star cast on what will be an edge-of-your seat, action-packed film,” said Levine and Beckerman. “We’re certain that Jon Keeyes will deliver a uniquely thrilling cinematic experience.”

Banderas’ has been a frequent collaborator of award-winning Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar, and starred in such works as the director’s Pain and GloryBanderas won the Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival for that film, and was nominated for Best Actor at the Oscars.

He will next be seen starring with Penelope Cruz in the Spanish comedy Official Competition and returns as the voice of Puss in Boots in Dreamworks Animation’s Puss in Boots: The Last Wish.

Next year, he stars in the highly anticipated fifth installment of the Indiana Jones film.

Pedro Pascal to Star in Pedro Almodóvar’s Upcoming Short Western “A Strange Way of the Life”

Pedro Pascal is preparing to work with a Spanish living legend…

The 47-year-old Chilean actor will star in Oscar-winning director Pedro Almodóvar’s upcoming short Western A Strange Way of the Life.

Pascal will star opposite Ethan Hawke in the project.

Almodovar teased details of the storyline in a note put out by El Deseo, the Madrid-based film company he runs with his brother Agustín Almodóvar.

“A man rides a horse across the desert that separates him from Bitter Creek. He comes to visit Sheriff Jake. Twenty-five years earlier, both the sheriff and Silva, the rancher who rides out to meet him, worked together as hired gunmen,” he wrote. “Silva visits him with the excuse of reuniting with his friend from his youth, and they do indeed celebrate their meeting, but the next morning Sheriff Jake tells him that the reason for his trip is not to go down the memory lane of their old friendship…. I must say no more so as not to give away all the surprises of the script,” he added.

It will be filmed in the Tabernas desert, in Spain’s south-eastern province of Almeria, in a village built 50 years ago by Sergio Leone to shoot his dollar trilogy with Clint Eastwood.

Antonio Banderas to Star in the Thriller “The Last Girl” for Yale Entertainment

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.

Antonio BanderasIn addition to Banderas, the project will also include Alice Eve and Shelley Hennig.

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.

First Look at Penelope Cruz in the Italian Film “L’immensita”

Penelope Cruz is ready to showcase her Italian language skills…

The 47-year-old Spanish Oscar-winning actress, who recently earned an Academy Award nod for her Spanish language role in Parallel Mothers, will star in the Italian drama L’immensita, which is currently in post-production. A first look photo of Cruz in the film has been released.

Penelope Cruz, L’immensitaEmanuele Crialese’s film is set in 1970s Rome. The Borghetti family has just moved into one of the many freshly-built apartment blocks in the city.

Clara (Cruz, who speaks Italian) and Felice (Vincenzo Amato) are no longer in love, but are unable to leave each other. Clara finds refuge from her loneliness in the shelter of her special relationships with her three children. The oldest, Adriana, an unknown child in their new neighborhood, deliberately presents as a boy to the neighborhood children, pushing the family’s bond towards breaking point.

The film is produced by Mario Gianani and Lorenzo Gangarossa for Fremantle’s Wildside with Dimitri Rassam for Chapter 2.
