Cruz to take ‘Horses’ lead

Thesp cast as Damon's love interest

Penelope Cruz has been cast to star opposite Matt Damon in Miramax/Columbia’s “All the Pretty Horses,” to be directed by Billy Bob Thornton and based on a novel by Cormac McCarthy. In the film, to shoot shortly in Texas, Cruz plays a Mexican girl from an upper-class family that discourages her romance with Damon’s character.

Cruz’s casting in “Horses” confirms her as Spain’s hottest international actress. Having co-starred in Stephen Frears’ Berlin Competition player “The Hi-Lo Country,” she has inked to star later this year in Fox Searchlight’s “Woman on Top,” to be directed by Fina Torres.
