It was announced last week that both Penelope Cruz and Edgar Ramirez will star in Todd Solondz’s Love Child. The film will be at the European Film Market in Berlin this coming week.
The story is said to be a modern Oedipus tale, where a young man who is in love with his mother, develops a plot to kill his abusive father, only to pin it on someone else. The film’s writer/director Todd Solondz has had previous films, such as Welcome to the Dollhouse and Happiness, win awards at the Sundance, Cannes, and Venice Film Festivals.
Edgar Ramirez, Bryce Dallas Howard and Matthew McConaughey discuss their new movie ‘Gold’ at Build Studio on January 17, 2017 in New York City.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ramirez’ character’s name is Kandomere, and he works for the FBI’s magic division. If you don’t recall, Bright revolves around a human cop, played by Will Smith, who partners up with the first Orc cop on the force, played by Joel Edgerton, to fight crime in a world populated by both humans and fantastical creatures. So like, a gritty version of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them or what Middle Earth would be like if it existed in the modern day.
Bright is currently in production, and doesn‘t yet have an official release date either on Netflix or in theaters.
