Antonio Banderas will play legendary artist Pablo Picasso for the upcoming film 33 dias (33 days).
The 51-year-old Spanish actor will star in the biopic about the famous artist and his emotional struggle while working on his masterpiece ‘Guernica’, according to Variety.
The film, directed by Carlos Saura, will also include Picasso‘s relationship with French artist and lover Dora Maar.
“He is a character that followed me for a long time, but had always rejected it. He deserves a lot of respect because I am Malagan,” Antonio said referring to his hometown during an interview with El Pais. “I was born four blocks from where he was born. It has always fascinated me.”
