Antonio Banderas is in negotiations to return to Broadway next year (11) in a new production of ZORBA THE GREEK.
The Mask of Zorro star, who won acclaim as the lead star of musical Nine in 2003, expressed his desire to return to the stage last summer (09).
He said, "I want to go back to theatre because it is my main source, I'm more a theatre actor than a film actor."
And Banderas is hopeful he will get to live out his dream under the bright lights of Broadway.
He tells WENN, "I'm going to have a meeting here (in New York) in order to establish a date for me to come back to Broadway.
"And I hope that if everything goes right, I cross my fingers, that may happen in September 2011 and it will be with the musical Zorba."
The title role was made famous by late acting icon Anthony Quinn in the 1964 film of the same name.
