Banderas steps into Castro's boots?

Antonio Banderas is currently starring in new film Haywire

Antonio Banderas is apparently in talks to play Fidel Castro in Castro's Daughter.

The Spanish star is looking to step into the shoes of the Cuban leader in the upcoming biopic, based on Castro's daughter Alina Fernandez's biography Castro's Daughter: An Exile's Memory Of Cuba, reported Screen Daily.

The movie, which is to be directed by English filmmaker Michael Radford and is being written by Bobby Moresco and Nilo Cruz, will tell the story of Alina, who escaped Cuba as a Spanish tourist and later wrote her book detailing life in Cuba and under her father's rule.

Filming is expected to take place in Puerto Rico.

Antonio - who was last seen in Pedro Almodovar's The Skin I Live In and Puss In Boots - next appears in Steven Soderbergh's Haywire alongside Ewan McGregor, Channing Tatum and Gina Carano.

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
