Stalked: Real Rocky director, Banderas joins Woody, Shake Hands With the Devil

Antonio Banderas has signed up for the latest Woody Allen film...

Shake Hands With the Devil is to get a U.S. release...

The biographical film of Rocky Marciano has a director according to The Hollywood Reporter. Mikael Salomon has signed to direct Undefeated: The Rocky Marciano Story which will mark the first authorised biographical film on the great boxing champion which will follow his entire life from childhood through to his death in 1969. The film will apparently reveal information about his younger brother Lou, although I don't see the interest in him over the undefeated boxer who won forty-nine fights with forty-three of them by knockout in his career, never losing one.

Antonio Banderas has signed up for the latest Woody Allen film which has yet to receive a title but will be filming in London. The story comes from Variety.

Shake Hands With the Devil is to get a U.S. release, and about time too. The film from Roger Spottiswoode follows the events of Canadian Lieutenant General Roméo Dallaire's experience as a leader of U.N. troops in Rwanda in 1994 during the genocide - yes U.N., I used the word genocide, now it's time for the U.S. to argue about the use of the term and the U.N. to apologise after the fact and say "never again"...again.

Shake Hands With the Devil by Roméo Dallaire (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com) is a tragic, moving and damning view of world politics and humanity, it does have a hugely positive side to it as well, and I'd suggest it's a must read for anyone who can. The story comes from The Hollywood Reporter.
