Penelope Cruz has been busy filming her new movie ‘Parallel Mothers’ in Spain which is a story about two mothers giving birth on the same day.
Production on the Pedro Almodóvar film began last month and this week Cruz was photographed busy at work in character. As always, the 46-year-old looked stunning in a casual outfit that consisted of a back t-shirt tucked into a pair of dark blue bootcut jeans. She wore a matching black and white long tweed jacket over it and accessorized with brown boots and a matching brown purse that hung over her shoulder.
Her hair was a light blonde color that hit at shoulder length and was styled straight with a side bang. Following CDC guidelines, the Spanish actress wore a black face mask.
The film, also known as ‘Madres paralelas’ was written by Almodóvar with Cruz in mind for the movie’s lead role, according to the Daily Mail. Cruz will appear in the movie alongside other actors including Aitana Sanchez Gijon and Milena Smit who play the mothers in the film and Israel Elejalde has been casted as the main male character.
In an interview with Deadline, Almodóvar spoke about his casting of the different actors.
“As a storyteller, imperfect mothers inspire me most at this time. Penélope Cruz, Aitana Sánchez Gijón and the young Milena Smit will play the three mothers in the film, accompanied by Israel Elejalde in the main male character. I also have the collaboration of my beloved Julieta Serrano and Rossy de Palma. Parallel Mothers will be an intense drama. Or so I hope.”
According to the Playlist, the film might be released at some point in early 2022 at a major film festival.
