Michael Cera Joins Spanish-Language Movie

After Scott Pilgrim vs. the World underperformed last fall, pundits politely asked Michael Cera to try something a little bit out of his hoodie-nerd wheelhouse. Would you accept a movie shot in an entirely different language? Cera's friend, director Miguel Arteta, told The Playlist that the actor is currently studying Spanish for his next project, an untitled Chilean film that will be directed by Sebastian Silva (The Maid). "He's spending five hours a day learning Spanish," said Arteta. "He follows his own heart." [Playlist]
