After years of being stalked by paparazzi, ANTONIO BANDERAS has decided if you can't beat them, join them.
The Spanish heartthrob, who is married to MELANIE GRIFFITHS, has signed up to play a paparazzi photographer in director BRIAN DePALMA's big-budget thriller FEMME FATALE. The movie will shoot in Paris and Cannes, France, as some of the action takes place during the film festival.
DePalma is currently searching for "a sexy RITA HAYWORTH" type actress for Banderas to photograph. (LE/DV/PDD)
