Joseph Fiennes is the villain, in case there were any doubts.
Children’s fantasy movie The Games Maker started shooting this winter in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is based off the eponymous Argentine novel by Pablo de Santis and it’s being directed by Juan Pablo Buscarini, the filmmaker behind the animated family movies The Hairy Tooth Fairy (El ratón Pérez, 2006) and The Ark (El arca, 2007). The film, however, is very much live-action and stars Joseph Fiennes in the villainous role, as well as a mostly American cast in this Argentine-Canadian co-production.

Set in Argentina, the film revolves around Ivan Drago, played by David Mazouz (Kiefer Sutherland’s clairvoyant kid in the TV series Touch). Ivan enters a competition to create a new board game and finds himself enveloped in a fantasy world ruled by Fiennes’ character. The film also features Edward Asner as Ivan’s grandfather, and employs local celebrities in minor roles, such as Alejandro Awada and Vando Villamil.

The movie is being distributed by Disney’s Buena Vista and is scheduled for release in 2014.
