After his Oscar win for The Salesman, director Asghar Farhadi reveals his next project is an upcoming film starring Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem. Farhadi has confirmed that his film will begin shooting in Spain in September.
This isn’t the first time Farhadi has produced a foreign film outside his native land. Farhadi also directed The Past, a French film.
The untitled film will be about family and family relationships, and although Cruz and Bardem are married, the real-life couple won’t “necessarily” play an on-screen couple. The film is currently produced by Pedro and Agustin Almodovar’s El Deseo and was bought by Memento Film.
