Javier to appear in film based on brother's novel
Spanish director Santiago Zannou said the winner of a best-supporting-actor Oscar for his turn in the Coen brothers' 'No Country for Old Men' will play a secondary character named Solis, a role distinct from the purely villainous one he has in the upcoming James Bond film.
"In my film (the character) is more realistic, not a wicked villain who wants to destroy the world, but an ordinary person. Those are the ones who truly frighten me, for having a type of ideology that separates people, that engenders violence," Zannou said.
This will mark the first time Bardem has worked with a Spanish director since he won four Goya awards for his performance in Alejandro Amenabar's 'Mar adentro' (The Sea Inside).
'Alacran enamorado' tells the story of Alyssa, a seductive Latin American immigrant who had fallen victim to a prostitution ring and now makes a living cleaning houses, and Julian, alias 'El alacran' (The Scorpion), a member of a neo-Nazi group.
