JAVIER Bardem is to play a neo-Nazi in a Spanish film based on a novel by his brother Carlos.

The Spaniard will play a character called Solis in Alacran Enamorado (Scorpion in Love), a love story between a Latin American immigrant and a member of a neo-Nazi group.

The actor could also star with his wife Penelope Cruz, and alongside Brad Pitt, in the Ridley Scott drama The Counselor.

The pair have already featured in three previous films together, with filming set to get underway in June.
