Penelope Cruz and Woody Allen Will Reteam

Patrick McMullan

Last year, Penelope Cruz turned down Lars Von Trier's next film to do the next Pirates of the Caribbean sequel, but it looks like shes ready to get back into the auteur game. The actress tells EW that her next project will be with Woody Allen, who directed her to a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Vicky Cristina Barcelona, but "because he's very secretive ... I really cannot say anything about the story or the characters." What we do know: It'll be set in Rome. And, presumably, it won't involve any old people getting horizontal. [EW]
