Penelope for Rome, Ridley, and Pedro
Here are Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, and their little Leo heading out of Madrid last week. To Rome With Love opens in limited release on June 22. There should be a promotional appearance for it coming soon. Or several.
Have you seen the trailer? I hate. The music makes me crazy. The music makes me wonder if the entire film will be all Mamma Mia Pizzeria Ciao Bella Gucci Donatella!
Anyway, Pene’s next project will also be an ensemble. There’s unlikely to be a dude making pasta in this one. She’s been confirmed for Ridley Scott’s The Counselor based on a screenplay by Cormac McCarthy starring Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt. She’ll also be reunited with her husband and her Vanilla Sky co-star Cameron Diaz.
It’s also just been announced that she will work again with Pedro Almodovar for another film about two lovers on an airplane. I love it already. If you’ve never had the pleasure, you need to see Penelope in Volver. She is incredible.
