Jude Poised to Chase Cameron Diaz
Law is set for a romantic comedy that also costars Kate Winslet and Jack Black
Jude Law, whose off-screen performances with on-again, off-again fiancee Sienna Miller have been getting more attention than his movie roles, is going back to work.
The Alfie actor, who was last year’s PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive, will star with Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet and Jack Black in the romantic comedy Holiday, from Something’s Gotta Give writer-producer-director Nancy Meyers.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the plot concerns an American woman (Diaz) whose love life is in trouble. She then befriends a British villager (Winslet) who suffers the same problem. Law will play Diaz’s character’s love interest, while Black will play Winslet’s character’s admirer.
Also getting busy, amid conflicting reports about his off-and-on relationship with Gisele Bundchen, is Leonardo DiCaprio. The star plans to travel to the subtropical coast of South Africa’s southeastern KwaZulu-Natal province for the adventure feature The Blood Diamond, which is due to start shooting in February. He plays a diamond smuggler whose goods are used to finance wars and rebellions in Africa.
