Penelope Cruz is in talks to reteam with Italian director Sergio Castellitto for Venuto al mondo (Into the World). The actress starred in his 2004 film No te muevas (Don't Move).

According to Variety, Cruz spoke at Friday's Madrid press screening of Pedro Almodovar's Broken Embraces, in which she stars, that "We're starting to talk but I can't confirm anything concrete."

Castellitto wants Cruz as lead femme in the drama, set in Sarajevo about a single mother, based on a novel by Castellitto's wife, Margaret Mazzantini.

The film will likely start production next year.
