What, was Marcial Di Fonzo Bo unavailable? ("Midnight in Paris" joke for you guys, right there.) According to Variety, Antonio Banderas is set to play Pablo Picasso in the upcoming docudrama, "33 Dias" ("33 Days").
The film follows Picasso during the 33 days it took him to paint the masterpiece "Guernica," which captured the destruction of the town during the Spanish Civil War.
"[Picasso] is a character that has pursued me for a long time and I always rejected. He deserves a lot of respect because I am from Malaga, and I was born four blocks from where he was born," Banderas told Spanish newspaper El Pais.
"33 Dias" will be directed by Carlos Saura. It will start shooting next summer in Paris and Guernica.
