Edgar Ramirez joins another battle

9 November 2008 6:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Edgar Ramirez is continuing his revolutionary ways.

The "Che" actor will star in French director Olivier Assayas' "Ilich: Story of Carlos."

Ramirez will tackle four to five languages for the complex role as the real life "anti-James Bond" who worked for radical Palestinians and groups in Syria, Libya, Iraq and communist Romania.

Film en Stock, Canal Plus and Egoli Tossell are producing the project, which will be released as a feature as well as a three-part TV series.

The film centers on the true story of Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, a Venezuelan-born leftist revolutionary nicknamed Carlos and later Jackal who famously raided the Opec headquarters in Vienna, Austria, in 1975.

"Story of Carlos" is the reminiscences of the revolutionary, who was manipulated by the secret services of Arabian and eastern countries and founded a worldwide terrorist organization. He ended up ridiculed and alone in exile in Sudan before being picked up by French police. »

There's only one problem with this. Ramirez is reportedly slated to play the same character in Antoine Fuqua's competing film, Escobar, for which Oliver Stone is executive producing. What gives? Word came down a few weeks ago that despite rumoring to the contrary, Javier Bardem would not headline Carnahan's film, so it's been know that the director was looking for another lead. We've also known that Carnahan has zero love for Fuqua and Stone's parallel production. So has Carnahan spirited Ramirez away from the competing film and on to his own? Chud received a message directly from Carnahan talking about Ramirez's potential involvement. "I spent the last »

After having Javier Bardem drop out of Killing Pablo, Joe Carnahan has replaced the actor with someone new. That someone new is Edgar Ramirez. Chud got the email from the big guy: "I spent the last week in Colombia with Edgar Ramirez talking 'Pablo' and he has every intention of portraying Escobar and I couldn't be more fired up by the prospect. He's coming at it with boundless enthusiasm, conviction to the role and and the understanding that he's going to have to pack on anywhere from »
