Antonio Banderas is all set to star in the Tony Krantz-directed neo-noir detective story,
The Big Bang
Richard Rionda Del Castro, Krantz and Erik Jendresen will produce the film, which is based on a script by Jendresen, who also penned 'Band of Brothers'.
The production of 'The Big Bang' will start in Spokane, Washington, in September, reports Variety magazine.
In the film, Banderas would be seen playing an L.A. private detective who's hired to find a missing stripper.
The track leads to the New Mexico desert, where he finds a trail of bodies and contends with a brutal Russian boxer, three LAPD detectives and an aging billionaire looking to perfect the nuclear physics equivalent of the Big Bang.
The film's executive producers will be Patricia Eberle, Richard Salvatore, and Ross Dinerstein.
And Rionda Del Castro's Hannibal Pictures is financing and handling foreign sales at Cannes.
U.S. representation is being handled by WMA and Endeavor.
The project would be the first theatrical feature for Krantz, one of the few ex-agents to make that leap.
