ANTONIO Banderas could become the next Fidel Castro.
The estranged daughter of the Cuban leader is calling on the Malaga actor to play her father in the upcoming biopic about her life.
“I have been a huge fan of Antonio for years, and hope to see him play my father,” said Alina Fernandez.
“I think he has a phenomenal charisma, and think he has the nerve to play the role perfectly. I’m very excited that he would consider this.”
The upcoming film, Castro’s Daughter, is based on Fernandez’s book and will tell the true story of Fernandez, the love child between a young Fidel Castro and the Cuban socialite Naty Revuelta.
Mankind Entertainment has chosen Michael Radford, an Oscar nominee for the 1994 movie The Postman, to direct the film. The screenplay will be written by Robert Moresco, winner of a 2004 Academy Award for Crash.
