NEW YORK — Cameron Diaz is negotiating to join Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruz in “Vanilla Sky,” the Paramount film written by Cameron Crowe to be directed by him this fall.

Though the plot is a closely guarded secret, pic reteaming the “Jerry Maguire” tandem of Cruise and Crowe is a love story produced by Cruise and his CW Prods. partner Paula Wagner. Diaz would play a supporting role.

The actress is now in Rome, about to begin production in the Miramax/IEG co-production “Gangs of New York,” the Martin Scorsese-directed drama in which she stars with Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis and Liam Neeson. She would likely squeeze in the Cameron Crowe film before taking the title role in the untitled Nancy Pimental project, a film to be directed by Roger Kumble.

Diaz, who will next be seen starring alongside Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu and Bill Murray in “Charlie’s Angels,” is repped by ICM’s Nick Styne, managed by AMG’s Rick Yorn and lawyered by Marcy Morris.
