Penelope Cruz will play Olga in the new English-language adaptation of Isabelle Quache’s “Days of Abandonment”, a novel by Elena Ferrante, already presented in cinema in 2005 by Roberto Faenza with Margherita Bui and Luca Zingaretti.
According to Variety, the agreement was reached before the start of the SAG-AFTRA strike, which has been ongoing for almost two months.
The film, written by Lawrence Corea, will be set in the United States and produced by Lotus Productions (now a division of Leone Film Group), Penélope Cruz’s Moonlyon and Edu Cruz and Marco Perego’s Nimoa Entertainment.
Plot of the novel:
Still young, calm and satisfied, the woman is suddenly abandoned by her husband and falls into a dark and ancient whirlpool. Left with two children and a dog, deeply marked by pain and humiliation, Olga from quiet Turin, where she moved several years ago, is drawn in by the ghosts of her Neapolitan childhood that take possession of the present and withdraw her into themselves. alienated and intermittent self-perception. Thus begins the catastrophic fall.
In recent days, we have seen Cruise driving for Ferrari alongside Adam Driver.
