Cruz Re-teams With Director Who Gave Her Breakthrough Role
Oscar winner PENELOPE CRUZ has signed up for a new movie re-teaming her with the director who made her a star.
Five years after Cruz's breakthrough role in Sergio Castellitto's Don't Move, the actress will this year (09) begin work on his latest project, Venuto al Mondo (Into the World).
The Spanish beauty - who lifted the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award last month (Feb09) for her role in Vicky Cristina Barcelona - will play a single mother in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The movie is based on a book written by Castellitto's wife Margaret Mazzantini.
When asked about the movie, a coy Cruz tells Daily Variety, "We're starting to talk but I can't confirm anything concrete."
