finally got the kids' stuff out of his system?

Banderas, star of the "Zorro" and "Shrek" series, has signed on to play the lead in neo-noir flick "The Big Bang," according to <i>Variety</i>. The actor will play an L.A.-based private investigator trying to figure out why strippers are being killed and dumped in the New Mexico desert.

The title comes not from a group of wacky geniuses but one of the characters, a wealthy recluse who wants to recreate the titular creation of the universe.

Dead strippers, huh? You won't see Puss in Boots touching that. Production starts in September.
