MADRID, Spain -- Spanish film stars Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem will work together in Woody Allen's next movie, Bardem told reporters Monday.
Bardem, who was in Barcelona to present the movie "Invisibles," which he produced, confirmed that he and Cruz would be filming with Allen in that city in July and August, the private news agency Europa Press said.
The 38-year-old actor said he had talked with Allen by phone but hadn't yet read the script. Details of Allen's movie, including its title, have not been released.
Bardem, an Oscar nominee for 2000's "Before Night Falls," starred with Cruz in 1992's "Jamon Jamon," directed by Bigas Luna.
Cruz, 32, received a best-actress nomination for Pedro Almodovar's "Volver" at this year's Oscars.
