ANTONIO Banderas has been begged to return to his project to revolutionise Malaga city centre in a letter signed by more than 50 culture professionals.

The 56-year-old Zorro star had pulled out of the scheme to create an arts and entertainment centre, complaining of  ‘humiliating treatment’.

But he has now been backed by 55 professionals, both local and national – among them, playwright Antonio Tejedor, politician Joaquin Leguina, and international flamenco dancer Eva Yerbabuena.

Banderas cancelled the project after opposition councillors criticised the bidding process.
It remains to be seen if this new backing will change his mind.
