Spanish actor Javier Bardem is joining Penelope Cruz as the cast member of Woody Allen's untitled Spanish project.
Making a great match for Penelope Cruz, Woody Allen has smoothly included Javier Bardem in to star opposite the actress in his untitled Spanish flick, which is planned to be made after the completion of his third London movie, "Cassandra's Dream."
Written and directed by Allen, the picture has already had both his sister Letty Aronson and Jaume Roures onboard to serve as the producers. While not much is known of the film's plot, as is often the case with Allen's movies, filming is expected to start this summer in Barcelona under Mediapro and Gravier Productions banner.
Bardem, who got nominated for an Oscar in 2001 through his role in "Before Night Falls", made his acting debut at age six and appeared in several local TV series before hit it big in "Jamon, Jamon" which Cruz also starred in. He next can be seen on the big screen playing the male lead in Mike Newell's "Love in the Time of Cholera", set to open in theaters on August 30 this year.
