Malaga’s golden boy, Antonio Banderas, told the Gulf News in Abu Dhabi last Saturday that he wants to come home to Spain for good, to make the sort of films he can’t make in Hollywood. He is in Abu Dhabi attending the film festival there with his wife, Melanie Griffith. He said that when he went to the States in 1992 he had every intention of returning home. And the thinks there is no better time than now, when he is interested in making a film about Boabdil, the last Moorish king of Granada. Banderas said he wanted to give a positive message about Arab culture, which he has been following closely in Morocco. He denied rumours that he had received death threats as a result of his desire to make the film. “My life is not in danger,” he said. “In fact, the film is the reason I’m here in Dubai, to seek Arab backing for it.”
