Penélope Cruz and Antonio Banderas have both acquired a role in the Competencia Oficial film . The two Spanish actors will play a director and an actor in the film, Deadline reports Thursday.
Competencia Oficial is about two actors who get to grips with each other during filming. It is not yet known when the film will be released.
Although Banderas and Cruz also both had a role in the 2019 film Pain and Glory – for which Banderas was nominated for an Oscar – they did not play scenes together. The last time that was the case was in 2013 in the comedy film I’m So Excited .
The Argentinian directors Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat will direct Competencia Oficial . The two are known from The Distinguished Gentleman and The Man Next Door .
