Banderas’ Moon shines on Vertice 360

Pair seal three-year deal for film and TV projects

Antonio Banderas’ Green Moon shingle has inked with Spanish media-tech giant Vertice 360 to co-produce one or two English-language films or TV projects a year over the next three years.

Deal kicks off with the tentatively titled psychological thriller “The Lonely Man,” which Banderas will direct and star in, with screenwriter Erik Jendresen (“Band of Brothers”) attached to pen. Production is scheduled for 2011.

“Man” turns on a member of the armed forces who discovers he’s the only person on the planet.

The second project, designed as a TV drama format, is tragicomedy “The Strange and Curious Case of Mrs. X,” a working title. It toplines Melanie Griffith, with Banderas playing a secondary role and directing.

In “Mrs. X,” also written by Jendresen, Griffith will limn a mother whose radical inner thoughts contrast with her conservative social environment.

Malaga-based Green Moon is in talks with several U.S. TV operators for the project, said Green Moon’s Antonio Meliveo.

Movie budgets will be above E6 million ($8 million), a mid to high level for a Spanish film.

Vertice 360’s subsids will take on production and post-production services, international sales and Spanish theatrical distribution on all films.
