Rumored for the part earlier this year, Penelope Cruz has been confirmed for Ridley Scott's The Counselor, Deadline reports. What's more, the site is reporting that the actress will reteam with Pedro Almodovar for a comedy titled Los Amantes Pasajeros (The Brief Lovers).

Cruz's fifth teaming with Almodovar has the actress joining Raúl Arévalo, Carlos Areces, Javier Cámara, Lola Dueñas, Cecelia Roth, Paz Vega and José Maria Yazpik. The plot is said to involve a love affair aboard an airplane.

The Counselor, meanwhile, will have Cruz starring opposite her real-life husband, Javier Bardem as well as Cameron Diaz, Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt.

An original screenplay by Cormac McCarthy, known for the novels-turned-films "All the Pretty Horses," "No Country for Old Men" and "The Road," the film tells of a present-day Southwest lawyer who gets in over his head in the drug trade.
