'Shrek' spinoff for Antonio Banderas: Like a 'Sergio Leone '60s Western'

antonio-banderas-puss-in-boots.jpgWhile the rest of the cast of the final "Shrek Forever After" film -- Cameron Diaz, Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy -- is sad that their saga has come to an end, Antonio Banderas is excited about his new animated "Puss in Boots" spin-off.

His seductive swashbuckling Spanish feline will continue, but not in the same narrative. Banderas describes the new movie as a  "Sergio Leone '60s Western, a very different concept" from "Shrek." His Boots character was not in the first "Shrek," but showed up in second, third and fourth final films.
