Pope Francis is the world’s most famous Latin American and a biopic about his life would likely reach sky-level box office sales around the world.
So, who should play the Holy man? One of the directors behind a project already in the works says Spanish actor Antonio Banderas could well fit the bill – a rumor that has been swirling after Variety magazine published a story about this in recent days.
“Banderas is an actor that I admire a lot and I like it to be him,” the Italian filmmaker said. “At this moment, I am very free to choose. It might be more an actor who can impersonate Bergoglio in his infancy, in his youth and as an adult. There are a lot of actors I like, including some Argentinian actors.”
