The covid does not stop Antonio Banderas: he has a full agenda for this 2022

Antonio Banderas had to stop a bulky schedule that had scheduled work on stage and new film productions.

Now the Spanish actor is looking forward to retaking the musical rehearsals Company, that he was almost ready to be seen in the Teatro Soho from Malaga (Spain).
The functions were suspended due to possible contagion of covid-19 in the assembly production team, who even now continue to undergo tests that can confirm that some symptoms and general malaise would be connected to the virus.

Company is “a strange musical because it does not have a traditional narrative, but rather they are sketches joined by people, Bobby and a group of friends, that represent human behavior.

That is why the decision of the ‘braking’ of Company until January 12.
Banderas not only sings and performs, but conducts this piece of music, originally created by Stephen Sondheim and George Furth, who develop a reflection on love and heartbreak, accompanied by an orchestra of 26 musicians and with a setting of New York in the 70s and lasting three hours.

This musical work is perhaps the greatest adventure in which Antonio Banderas has gotten into a staging, which adds at the same time his work in the fifth installment of the famous Indiana Jones film saga, in which the Spanish will share with his friend Harrison Ford and with Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson and Toby Jones, among others.

Added to this is the dubbing, in some studios in Malaga, of the film Puss in boots 2, a job you spend time on in your busy schedule. As if that were not enough, it is also part of the company of A Chorus Line in London and at the Public Theater on Broadway, although he will not be able to stay here for the six months that the show will be performed because “it is too long” and he has “to keep paying bills.” About Company, has been excited “to offer a very powerful musical.”

“We have an advantage over other theaters: we don’t want to market this, we want the money to reinvest it and to continue doing shows,” he said.

Company is “a strange musical because it does not have a traditional narrative, but rather they are sketches joined by people, Bobby and a group of friends, who represent human behaviors,” explained the Malaga actor, who has his daughter, Stella del Carmen, as one of the show’s assistant directors who hopes to return to the stage soon.

He likes action

Another of his films, which is in post-production, is The Enforcer, in which he plays a tough guy who tries to save a young woman who is in danger of falling into a network of human trafficking and virtual sex. In this plot of pure action, he has the support of the actress Kate Bosworth and Australian director Richard Hughes, who makes his feature film debut with this story.

In the same genre, it will also be part of the film Banshee, which follows the adventures of a hitman who seeks revenge after being ambushed by a mercenary who killed her family.

He also stars in and serves as the executive producer of the police miniseries. The Monster of Florence, in the role of the Italian reporter Mario Spezi, who investigates a series of murders that occurred between 1960 and 1980.
