Spanish actor Antonio Banderas has signed on to star in the upcoming action-crime thriller movie “Clean Up Crew”.
Rhys Meyers and Melissa Leo will also star in the movie.
“Clean Up Crew”, which wrapped production recently in Ireland, is set to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next month.
The movie is centered around a crime scene clean-up crew (Meyers and Leo) who find a briefcase full of money during a job.
When they decide to take the money for themselves, the pair become the target of a crime boss (Banderas), who dedicates all his resources to get the money back including using hitmen and government officials.
“Clean Up Crew” is directed by Jon Keeyes from a script by Matthew Rogers.
The movie is produced by Jordan Yale Levine, Jordan Beckerman, and Michael Rothstein for Yale Entertainment with Richard Bolger and Conor Barry for Hail Mary Pictures.
Other producers include Richard Clabaugh, Stephen Braun, and Kurt Ebner.
The acclimed actor’s decades-long career has spanned stage and screen in both the United States and his homeland.
He is a frequent collaborator of iconic Spanish writer-director Pedro Almodóvar who has starred in a number of his most notable titles, including “Pain and Glory“, for which he won the Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival, also landing an Academy Award nomination in the same category.
Banderas can currently be seen starring with Penelope Cruz in the Spanish comedy Official Competition, is set to return as the voice of Puss in Boots in “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish“, and next year stars in the highly anticipated fifth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise.
