Penelope Cruz Drama ‘Ma Ma’ Bought by Oscilloscope for U.S.

Penelope Cruz’s drama “Ma Ma” has been acquired by Oscilloscope Laboratories ahead of its Sept. 15 world premiere in the Special Presentations section of the Toronto Film Festival.

Julio Medem (“Sex and Lucia”) directed the pic, which stars Cruz as a woman with an unending capacity for love who’s faced with a grim medical diagnosis of breast cancer. She then connects with a soccer star (played by Luis Tosar) dealing with the loss of his wife and daughter — and together, they raise her son while grappling with the realities of their situations.

Cruz also produced the film with Medem and Alvaro Longoria for Morena Films. Medem’s other credits include “Lovers of the Arctic Circle,” “Chaotic Ana” and “Room in Rome.”

CAA, which represents Cruz, brokered the deal. Seville International is handling international sales and eOne is releasing the film in Spain and Canada.
