Luca Argentero and Cristina Marino, from meeting their daughter Nina on the set: the story of a love
Can Yaman and Luca Argentero together for Sandokan. The two actors, according to the latest advances, will be in the reboot of the film that tells the adventures of the Tiger of Mompracem. The star of Daydreamer – the wings of the dream, will work in Italy alongside Argentero in a radio podcast that will later become a TV drama. It was unveiled by Luca Bernabei of Lux Vide who illustrated the project born from a partnership with RTL 102.5.
"Can has embraced the project," he said, stating that Yaman would have enthusiastically welcomed the idea of giving life to the TV series on Sandokan. "It was not easy to tear him from the many projects he is involved in right now". Born from the pen of Emilio Salgari, Sandokan is a gentleman pirate who lives in Malaysia and fights against British colonialism. The hero can count on Yanez De Gomea, his best friend, and on love for Marianna. The character was made famous in Italy thanks to Kabir Bedi, who played the role of the pirate in the 1976 fiction directed by Sergio Sollima.
