Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna may be new fathers, but they're still making time for their day jobs! The recently reunited screen stars just announced the launch of Ambulante 2009, their touring documentary film festival, at a press conference in Mexico City. Ambulante, which was founded by Gael and Diego in 2008 through their film production company, Canana, kicked off on Thursday with the Oscar-nominated movie Jesus Camp and will hit 15 cities in their native Mexico through March 29.
At the kickoff event, the duo tried their best to avoid questions about their newborn sons, while Luna addressed the rumor that he will play iconic Mexican comedian Cantinflas in a recently announced biopic. "I read about that in a newspaper and it pleased me but afterwards made me very scared. Imagine playing Cantinflas, that would be crazy."
Sounds like Luna is being too modest. After all, he just delivered a great performance in Milk and was nominated for a Goya Award for Sólo Quiero Caminar, so he can afford to have a little bit of an ego, right?
Would you like to see Luna play Cantinflas?
