Antonio Banderas is about to get his director action on again!

The actor-singer-producer-director-cologne-maker will be directing his third film, a psychological thriller that has a hint of sci-fi, titled Solo.

The movie features a Spanish colonel, played by Banderas, who is suffering from post-conflict trauma and eventually, "turns on solitude."

Banderas' Green Moon label, based out of his native Malaga in Spain, will develop and produce the movie with a budget of $14 million. The screenplay is witten by Erik Jendresen, who also co-wrote Goleor: the Scales and the Sword, which is an animated project developed by Banderas' Spanish animation studio, Kandor Moon.

The Spanish film will shoot in English, but will feature Spanish actors. Banderas said that it was important to film in English because it's needed "to reach large international markets."

This will be his third film as a director. His last two directing projects were 1999's Crazy in Alabama and 2006's Summer Rain.

Solo is set to release sometime in 2012.

Fantastico! Sounds like a great premise. Will U be watching?

    Poor Antonio, he has to look at his wife's HORRIFYING DISFIGURED FACE everyday; thank Gawd for paper grocery sacks & Vodka (kept hidden from what's her face, of course).

    I wonder if Melanie Griffith was a victim of Dr. Jiffy-Lube, the Plastic Surgeon to the Stars who injected Automotive Grade Silicon in their wrinkles (the stuff they greases the door hinges with). Talk about DESPERATE BITCHES!



  3. 3

    I hear he needs this job; Melanie Griffith's industrial face putty costs a fortune; thank Gawd it comes in 55 gallon barrels with pump and the company makes a daily delivery.

    Melanie Griffith "Antonio, please tell me I'm pretty…"

    Antonio "With or Without the Paper Sack on?"

    It's about time he did something! Was beginning to wonder if Melanie had ate him or something! He's another one of those "now you see him, now you don't underrrated" actors who needs a good vehicle to get to his reward. Do the words Mickey Rourke ring a bell Antonio? Find a worthy project and forget flops like CRAZY IN ALABAMA and DON'T put your wife in the movie!!!
