Javier Bardem Will Have a 'A Most Violent Year' & Finds 'The Gunman'

Javier Bardem

After taking on James Bond in last year's Skyfall, the intimidating Javier Bardem will be taking a couple more interesting roles. Deadline has word on two new deals for the Spanish actor including A Most Violent Year, the next film from Margin Call writer and director J.C. Chandor, and The Gunman (formerly known as Prone Gunman) from Taken director Pierre Morel. Details on A Most Violent Year are unknown since the title was just announced when Chandor premiered his newest film All is Lost, starring Robert Redford, at Cannes (read Alex's review right here), but in this film Bardem will play the good guy.

As for The Gunman, the film is based on Jean-Patrick Macnhette's novel Prone Gunman with a script by Dredd and Vantage Point director Pete Travis. Sean Penn joined the project earlier this year in the stry of an international hitman Martin Terrier, who is betrayed by the organization he works for and must go on the run in a relentless game of cat-and-mouse across all of Europe. This one will pit Bardem against Penn, putting the actor back in villainous territory, which isn't bad considering his bad guy role in No Country for Old Men landed him an Oscar. We'll keep you posted on both these new projects, so stay tuned.
