Penelope Cruz (“Volver,” “Nine”) has come on board to both star in and produce the Toni Kalem-directed drama “Layover” for Animus Films and Serena Films.
The story is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by best-selling author Lisa Zeidner and focuses on a successful traveling saleswoman, who decides to go on the lam from her life.
A master of reinvention, she develops elaborate scams for sneaking into hotel rooms, alone or with a guest, and a passion for swimming in their pools.
Kalem penned the script while Tatiana Kelly and Jim Young will produce. The project is currently in pre-production.
