Antonio Banderas and Gwyneth Paltrow to play Picasso and Dora Maar

picasso-guernicaAntonio Banderas will play the role of Pablo Picasso in an upcoming movie directed by Carlos Saura, while Gwyneth Paltrow will play Picasso’s muse, Dora Maar.

The film will be titled “33 Dias” and is said to follow the story behind Picasso’s 1937 painting, ‘Guernica’.

This role has been proposed to Banderas few years ago, but only now he feels ready for this role: “I turned down the chance at one point of playing Mr. Pablo, but the time has come in my life where I understand him better, and I am nearly at the age he was when those events happened, in 1937, when he was 55 or 56, and I’m getting close.”  Then the project has been delayed because the production company ended up filing for bankruptcy protection.
