Penelope Cruz in Sarajevo to shoot movie

Sarajevo: Spanish actress Penelope Cruz has arrived in Sarajevo, where she will film ‘Venuto al mondo,’ a drama directed by Sergio Castellitto.

‘Venuto al mondo’ is the film adaptation of the same-named novel by Margaret Mazzantini, Castellitto`s wife and one of the most popular writers in Italy.

Cruz will play the role of Gemma, a single mother who accompanies her teenage son to modern-day Sarajevo, the birthplace of his father, who died during the 1992-95 war in Bosnia.

Participating in the project are Bosnian production companies Pro.ba and Deblokada.

The Oscar-winning actress has worked with Castellitto before on his 2004 film ‘Non ti muovere.’
