Antonio Banderas to play Pablo Picasso
Antonio Banderas will play Pablo Picasso in the new biopic 33 Days, which will portray the co-founder of the cubist movement and his emotional struggle while working on his masterpiece mural Guernica.
The movie will also examine the relationship between the artist and his French lover Dora Marr, who was with him at the time he made Guernica. It will also show his reaction to the destruction of the town that gave the artwork its name during the Spanish Civil War.
The film 33 Days is slated to have a budget of 7.9 million dollars, and will be directed by Carlos Saura.
