Monica Bellucci Joins Manual Of Love 3

Monica Bellucci has joined the cast of 'Manual of Love 3'.

The 'Sorcerer's Apprentice' actress will team up with Robert DeNiro for the latest film in the Italian romantic drama franchise.

Monica will play the love interest of Robert De Niro's character, a divorced American professor living in Rome. The actors' parts will be spoken partially in English and partially in Italian, Variety reports.

Producer Aurelio De Laurentiis said that while the first two movies have been successful in Europe - making a combined total of $45 million at the Italian box office - he hopes that by casting the Oscar winner the third movie will reach a wider audience. He said: "This third one, with De Niro in the cast, will have greater international ambitions."

The movie will be directed by Giovanni Veronesi who directed the first two films .

This will be the first foreign-language production for Robert since 1976, when he starred in Bernardo Bertolucci's '1900.' He currently has a number of movies in production including 'Meet The Parents' sequel 'Little Fockers.'

Monica will next star in 'The Whistleblower' with Rachel Weisz and Vanessa Redgrave.
