Luna sheds light on ‘Solo’ film

Actor to star in Yanes drama

Diego Luna has been attached to star in “Solo quiero caminar,” a tale of passion and violence from Spanish helmer-screenwriter Agustin Diaz Yanes.

Spanish-Mexican co-production teams Jose Manuel Lorenzo’s Madrid-based production house Drive Entertainment and broadcaster Antena 3 TV’s Antena 3 Films with Mexico’s Canana, the production-distribution shingle founded by actors Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal and producer Pablo Cruz.

Spanish actress Elena Anaya (“Van Helsing”) has also joined the predominantly femme cast, which includes Spanish actresses Ariadna Gil, Pilar Lopez de Ayala and Victoria Abril.

“Caminar” tells the story of four small-time bank robbers, all women, who clash with the mob in Mexico City. Production will begin by the end of February, rolling for seven weeks in Mexico City and three in Spain.

Anaya, Gil and Lopez de Ayala appeared last year in Diaz Yanes’ swashbuckler “Alatriste,” starring Viggo Mortensen. That local blockbuster took in $24.5 million in Spanish theaters.

“Solo quiero caminar” revisits some subjects and characters from Diaz Yanes’ 1995 directorial debut, the social thriller “Nobody Will Talk About Us When We’re Dead,” including the prostitute Gloria Luque, whom Abril plays again 12 years later.

Diaz Yanes titled the film “Solo quiero caminar” after a song by flamenco guitarist maestro Paco de Lucia.
