Penélope Cruz Probably Skipping Lars von Trier Movie for Pirates of the Caribbean 4

Good news, fans of Penélope Cruz's well-being! Despite yesterday's Google-translated reports from Denmark claiming the actress would submit to Lars von Trier's direction in Melancholica, it now looks like she won't. According to another translated story, "Penélope Cruz has been both to speak and to debate, but as it seems right now, we will not have agendas to go up." Phew! So what's she doing instead? According to the Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog, she's in negotiations to reunite with Nine director Rob Marshall and Blow co-star Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean 4. Like we've said a thousand times, a nice vacation in Dominica sure beats mutilating genitals in Denmark.
