Bardem & Cruz Set For Escobar’s Lover Film

Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz are reportedly set to star in “Escobar,” a film set to be shopped at the Cannes market next week by Millennium Films.

Fernando Leon de Aranoa helms from this own script based on a true story of the unlikely romantic relationship between the famed drug kingpin and the upscale TV host Virginia Vallejo.

Dean Nichols and Bardem are producing with the latter set to be on hand to help sell it on the Croisette next week.
