A week ahead of the world premiere of her upcoming Juliette Binoche drama Nobody Wants the Night, prolific Spanish director Isabel Coixet has announced her next project: a love-triangle romance starring Penelope Cruz and Diane Kruger called This Man, This Woman.
The film will find a woman (Cruz) and her former lover (a male actor yet to be cast) reuniting on a plane and reminiscing over their turbulent years together. Kruger will play a talk-show host the man had an affair with.
Said the project’s backers, “Frederic Raphael has written a mesmerizing script which closely examines a couple’s rollercoaster relationship over the years, which will be brilliantly brought to life by the talented filmmaker Isabel Coixet.” They added, “It feels like a minor miracle to finally bring this passion of mine to the screen and to put together this dream cast, including the superbly talented Penelope Cruz and Diane Kruger, who are the perfect actresses to bring these multi-layered characters to life. Combined with an extraordinary director to help realize Freddie’s amazing script, there must be a movie God after all.”
