Oscar-winning actress Penelope Cruz is in early negotiations to reteam with Sergio Castellitto, the Italian director whose 2004 Don’t Move gave Cruz her first career-making role, reports Variety.
“We’re starting to talk but I can’t confirm anything concrete as yet,” Cruz said Friday.
Castellitto wants Cruz as the lead female in Venuto al Mondo (“Into the World”).
The Sarajevo-set drama about a single mother is based on a novel by Castellitto’s wife, Margaret Mazzantini, as was Don’t Move.
The project is unlikely to start filming this year.
