Antonio Benderas and Jonathan Rhys Meyers team up for Black Butterfly!
Antonio Banderas and Jonathan Rhys Meyers will co-star in the psychological thriller “Black Butterfly,” directed by Brian Goodman (“What Doesn’t Kill You”).
Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi’s Ambi Group and Silvio Muraglia’s Paradox Studios are financing and producing “Black Butterfly.” Marc Frydman is also producing while Mikael Wiren and Alexandra Klim are executive producing.
The movie is based on the French film “Papillon Noir,” written by Hervé Korian. Justin Stanley (“Stigmata”) and Steve Hilts are adapting a new screenplay.
Banderas will play a down-on-his-luck screenwriter who picks up a drifter (Meyers) and offers him a place to stay. However, when the deranged stranger takes the screenwriter hostage and forces him to write, their unhinged relationship brings buried secrets to light.
