Antonio Banderas and his wife Melanie Griffith are planning to quit Hollywood to move to New York.

Spain native Banderas is drawn to the bustling city's cosmopolitan feel and hopes to make it his home as soon as he and his family find the time.

He says, "It feels like home, getting into New York. It's a beautiful feeling. Actually, I wanna move to this city. We are planning to.

"(We'll get) a little place here at the beginning, but little by little I would like to start just moving towards New York. It's more European."

The move is expected to coincide with Banderas' return to Broadway next year (04), when he'll star in a stage version of the movie DEATH TAKES A Holiday.
