Kusturica Plans A “Pancho Villa” Flick

Serbian helmer Emir Kusturica (“Black Cat, White Cat,” “Time of the Gypsies”) will make a biopic about Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa for Fidelite says Variety.

Entitled “Seven Friends of Pancho Villa and the Woman With Six Fingers,” the Gordan Mihic co-penned script is based on James Carlos Blake’s novel “The Friends of Pancho Villa” about the legendary outlaw turned general and governor.

Javier Bardem is being sought out by the director to play Villa, but no casting is yet confirmed.

Shooting will take place in Mexico, Spain and some interiors in Serbia in either late 2009 or early 2010.
