Antonio Banderas joins He Loves Me

July 13th, 2011

Antonio Banderas has joined the cast of 'He Loves Me'.

The 'Evita' actor will star alongside Steve Coogan and Deborah Ann Woolf in the movie, the long awaited next movie from 'Little Miss Sunshine' directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris.

The film tells the tale of a young novelist - played by Paul Dano - called Calvin who finds his career is fading, and is told to write the woman who he thinks he will love him, only for her to come to life.

Zoey Kazan will play the girlfriend role, and has also written the screenplay for the project.

The film has already begun shooting in Los Angeles, and Antonio will play the latest boyfriend of Calvin's mother, portrayed by 'The Kids Are Alright' star Annette Bening.

'Little Miss Sunshine' - which starred Toni Colette, Steve Carrell and Abigail Breslin - made £100 million worldwide on its release in 2006, and the co-filmmakers Jonathan and Valerie have spent the last five years working as commercial directors before being persuaded to return to features by Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa from Bonafide Productions.

Spanish-born Antonio was last seen in 'The Skin I Live In' and has projects including 'Puss in Boots' and 'SpyKids: All the Time in the World 4-D' coming out this year.
