Antonio Banderas To Star In New Thriller The Last Girl

Academy Award-nominated actor and Zorro franchise star Antonio Banderas is set to lead the upcoming crime thriller The Last Girl. The film is being hemled by prolific director Jon Keeyes. The director recently collaborated with Banderas on the action film Code Name Banshee, which is being released in select theaters and on demand this week on July 1st. Also starring in The Last Girl, penned by Charles Burnley, is Bombshell and Star Trek Into Darkness actress Alice Eve.

According to Deadline, Banderas has been cast in a lead role in The Last Girl. The report outlines that Eve plays a private investigator forced into a dangerous alliance with a killer. The young investigator aims to “uncover a quiet town’s grisly criminal underbelly and clear the name of her mentor,” played by Banderas, who is implicated in criminal activity. Filming is currently set to begin on The Last Girl sometime this summer in Ireland. Eve and Banderas will also be joined in the cast by Shelley Hennig, who is known for MTV’s Teen Wolf series, and the horror film Unfriended. Jordan Yale Levine, Jordan Beckerman, and Michael J. Rothstein are producing The Last Girl. This team, along with Keeyes, are also producing the recently announced Samuel L. Jackson film The Kill Room.

Banderas’ career spans several decades and the actor has appeared in many modern classics, such as Interview With the Vampire, Philadelphia and Desperado. The actor notably lent his voice to the character of Puss in Boots for the Shrek film franchise, before earning his own solo film as the titular character in 2011. Banderas has also recently joined the ranks of the iconic Harrison Ford-led film saga in Indiana Jones 5, which is due to release in summer 2023. Amid Banderas’ largely action and adventure-driven film background, The Last Girl marks a departure from the actor’s usual roles as he takes on a darker, grittier character. As such, the film seems poised to become one to watch for Banderas fans everywhere.
