Johnny Depp and Salma Hayek are set to star in director Emir Kusturica’s biopic of Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa, according to ScreenDaily. Kusturica, a two-time Cannes Palme d’Or winner, will shoot the film (to be titled Wild Roses, Tender Roses) in Spanish next year. The project is described as an epic in the style of Sergio Leone’s spaghetti westerns and Sam Peckinpah’s The Wild Bunch. Depp and Kusturica previously collaborated on 1993’s Arizona Dream, a film that was little seen in the U.S. “This will be my biggest movie,” said Kusturica of the Villa project. “I will be doing it without compromise.”
