Remake of Spanish film says “Si” to C’s

Cruise and Cruz. Cameron and Cameron. Are there enough C’s in this project?

Cameron Crowe’s next film, Vanilla Sky, is being kept under wraps, but we do know that the romance will star Tom Cruise, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz.

The film is a remake of a 1997 Spanish film, Alejandro Amenabar’s Abre los ojos (Open Your Eyes), which also starred Cruz. The other Cruise bought the English-language remake rights back in 1998.

This will mark the first time that Crowe has adapted a screenplay to direct rather than directing an original script.
