MALAGA-born film star Antonio Banderas has been forced to put plans to direct a new film on hold.

The star hoped to direct and star in the film, Solo, but was forced to shelve the plans after complications with the producer, Green Moon.

The Sci-Fi film has been on hold since 2010.

It focuses on the Moorish King, Boabdil, who gave the keys of Granada back to the Catholic Monarchs.

Previous reports said the film’s budget was huge and that Lawrence of Arabia actor Omar Sharif was on the pay role.
