Antonio Banderas has joined the running list of actors who is constantly doing quick and easy low-budget action films for VOD consumption. Others on that list include Nicolas Cage, Bruce Willis and John Cusack.
At least his latest movie, GUN SHY, teams him with veteran action filmmaker, Simon West, whose filmography began with Con Air then continues with movies like Angelina Jolie’s early action film Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Jason Statham’s The Mechanic and The Expendables 2.
The new trailer for the R-rated Gun Shy, which will be released on September 8 by Saban Films, shows Banderas having fun as a rockstar whose supermodel wife (Olga Kurylenko from Oblivion) is kidnapped while they’re vacationing in Chile, so he has to take to the streets of Santiago to rescue her.
The action-comedy is written by Mark Haskell Smith and Toby Davis, and it co-stars Ben Cura, Mark Valley and Aisling Loftus.
