Bichir loads up for ‘Guns’

Spain's Calparsoro to direct indie western

Demian Bichir (“Che”) is set to star in indie western “A Thousand Guns” opposite Vera Farmiga.

Spanish director Daniel Calparsoro is set to helm from Russell Friedenberg’s script, which tells the story of a preacher’s wife and her journey of revenge.

Paull Cho and Heather Rae are producing for newly minted banner Prominent Pictures, which is developing a slate of features budgeted between $2 million and $10 million.

Bichir, who played Fidel Castro in “Che,” portrayed Esteban Reyes on “Weeds.” He recently completed filming the title role in the Fox Studios Mexico feature “Hidalgo-Moliere,” directed by Antonio Serrano and produced by Bichir, and played the lead in Irish indie feature “The Runaway,” directed by Ian Power.
