Bardem signs on for two thrillers

Javier Bardem will play a good guy in A Most Violent Year

Javier Bardem is set to star in two upcoming thrillers - The Gunman and A Most Violent Year.

The Spanish star, who gave an award-winning performance as Bond villain Raoul Silva in Skyfall, has signed up for both films, reported Deadline.

He will join Sean Penn in Pierre Morel's action thriller The Gunman, which follows a spy who has to clear his name in order to save his own life.

Javier - best known for his villainous roles - will play a good guy in JC Chandor's A Most Violent Year, which is expected to start shooting in New York in the autumn.

The 44-year-old actor, who is expecting his second child with wife Penelope Cruz, will next be seen in Ridley Scott's drama The Counsellor alongside his wife and co-stars Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender and Cameron Diaz.
