According to The Hollywood Reporter, Penelope Cruz is in talks to join husband of two years Javier Bardem in Ridley Scott's The Counselor, the highly-anticipated drama penned by Pulitzer Prize winner Cormac McCarthy.
Cruz and Bardem have worked together before; they both appeared in the 1992 flick Jamon Jamon, and in Woody Allen's Vicky Christina Barcelona in 2008, just one year after they began dating.
In addition to Bardem--who also starred in 2007's No Country for Old Men, the gritty drama based on the McCarthy novel of the same name--Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt have already signed on to costar in The Counselor. Also in talks? Pitt's love--and new fiancee--Angelina Jolie, though THR says the actress may have trouble balancing the part with her starring role in Maleficent, which hits theaters in 2014.
