- GUERNICA 33 DAYS
Gwyneth Paltrow looks set to claim major role in the drama Guernica 33 Days, Collider reports.
The story centers on Pablo Picasso’s emotional turmoil as he painted his masterpiece, with Antonio Banderas onboard to play the legendary artist. Variety reports that Paltrow is in talks to play Picasso’s lover Dora Maar, a Spanish-speaking French photographer who snapped the stages of “Guernica’s” creation. Paltrow speaks Spanish, having lived as an exchange student in Spain during her teenage years, and she recently flaunted her Español skills as a substitute Spanish teacher on Glee.
Paltrow’s a strong actress when given the right material, so hopefully she can shine in Guernica. Carlos Saura (The Hunt) is set to direct, and production will begin in mid-September.
You can catch Gwyneth as Pepper Potts in Avengers, as she get ready to reprise the role in Iron Man 3 which goes into production very soon.
