Two new projects for Javier/ Nuevos proyectos para Javier

Thanks for the info, princess of peace! 🙂

EXCLUSIVE: Javier Bardem has found a couple of killer roles. He will star as the good guy (for a change) in J.C. Chandor’s next film, A Most Violent Year, which will shoot in Manhattan this fall. Chandor, who made a splash in Cannes unveiling the Robert Redford-starrer survival tale All Is Lost, wrote A Most Violent Year, which Before The Door’s Neal Dodson and Anna Gerb will produce, with FilmNation handling global sales. Bardem is also locking in to go mano a mano with Sean Penn in The Gunman, another project that made waves at Cannes by selling out its foreign territorial allotment. The film is being directed by Pierre Morel and financed by Studio Canal, with Joel Silver and Andrew Rona producing. Bardem excels in these kinds of movies, winning the Oscar for No Country For Old Men, and most recently playing the existentially tortured villain who squared off against 007 in Skyfall. He’s repped by WME and will next be seen in the stellar cast of the Ridley Scott-directed The Counselor, opposite Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz and Penelope Cruz.


El actor español Javier Bardem ha cerrado su participación en dos nuevas películas, “The Gunman” y “A Most Violent Year”, según adelantó este miércoles Deadline Hollywood que reveló pocos detalles sobre los proyectos.

En “The Gunman”, Bardem será el contrapunto de Sean Penn, quien interpretará a un asesino profesional del gobierno ya retirado cuya vida pasada le acaba dando caza.

El filme será desarrollado por la productora europea StudioCanal y producido por Joel Silver (“Matrix”, “La jungla de cristal”) y Andrew Rona (“Unknown”) y dirigido por el realizador francés Pierre Morel (“Venganza”).

Asímismo se podrá ver a Bardem, ganador de un Óscar por “No es país para viejos”, en “A Most Violent Year”, largometraje que dirigirá J.C. Chandor (“Margin Call”) quien se encargará también del guión de la historia que se filmará en Nueva York en otoño.

  1. Great news I admit I haven’t been following Javier to much because he seems to be “nesting” for the arrival of baby number 2. A Most Violent Year sound more interesting than the gun movie, but I’m just happy he’s going back to work, I think the last time he shot a role was for his cameo in his brother’s movie almost a year ago. I love this guy and I wish he was in more roles, but I also appreciate that he’s picky and doesn’t just shoot everything that’s offered to him (Banderas I’m side-eyeing you!). I hope you are all having a great summer.
