Antonio Banderas has revealed his Shrek spin-off will have a Quentin Tarantino feel to it.
Speaking at the Los Angeles premiere of Shrek Forever After, the actor explained what we can expect from his character's own animated adventure, Puss In Boots, when it hits cinemas in 2011.
"The movie is slightly different because actually they're taking more of the imagery of movies in the 60s, like spaghetti westerns and stuff like that," he told reporters. "It's going to be kind of a Tarantino animation."
Antonio said he can't wait for Shrek fans to find out more about Puss's back story.
"I think we'll have more time to squeeze the character and to see him in a totally different way," he said.
"I actually have the script. He's a little kid, he's in an orphanage at the beginning and you're going to see why he became an ogre killer," the actor revealed.
Antonio also spoke about how faith and belief has strengthened his marriage to Melanie Griffith.
"Believe each other, having faith that when you cross a space of crisis you come out stronger. People nowadays, they are not used to that thing," he said.
Antonio - who supported his actress wife through spells in rehab and her battle with skin cancer - added: "People love the first six months, that kind of 'pink' feeling and when they lose it, they look for another one - I believe that what I obtained now after 14 years, you can only get it if you have been 14 years there."
