Martha wrote earlier today about how Neil Jordan has been trying to get the film Borgia made forever, to no avail, and how the project has once again been shelved. But we have good news for all you film buffs who have been anxiously awaiting a film about the scandalous Renaissance dynasty - Los Borgia, helmed by Spanish director Antonio Hernández (who is also in production on Cervantes), has been acquired by Spanish company Filmax for worldwide rights outside Italy and Spain.

Hernández's version of the film stars Lluís Homar as  notorious pope Alexander VI, Sergio Peris-Mencheta as his ruthless son César, and María Valverde as César's sister Lucrezia, who, depending which account you believe, was either a wicked femme fatale as ruthless and cunning as her brother and father, or a pawn of both in their unquenchable lust for power.
