PENELOPE Cruz will co-direct and produce a film Ma ma by one of Spain’s most prominent auteurs, LA-based director Julio Medem.
An ‘intimate woman’s drama, laced with moments of comedy’, Ma ma revolves around Magda, a woman battling inner turmoil.
The movie will be shot in Spain this spring starring Cruz, alongside Luis Tosar, and Asier Exteandia.
Elsewhere, two of Hollywood’s biggest stars were spotted filming in Valencia this week.
Hugh Laurie and George Clooney are shooting scenes for Tomorrowland, the next science fiction adventure from Disney.
Clooney plays a grizzled inventor called Frank Walker, is already being touted as one of the big releases for 2015 and features Hugh Laurie as a baddie called David Nixe.
The big budget blockbuster shares its name with the futuristic themed lands found at Disney’s theme parks.
Clooney was rumoured to have bought a house in the Marbella area last summer, although it has never been confirmed.
