Giovanna Mezzogiorno will star opposite Javier Bardem in Love in the Time of Cholera, which Mike Newell is directing for Stone Village Pictures and New Line Cinema. Stone Village is fully financing the movie and will hold all international rights. Based on the novel by Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Cholera tells the story of an unrequited love that spans more than 50 years in turn-of-the-century South America where two lovers (Bardem and Mezzogiorno) wait out careers, marriages, affairs and deaths until they can reunite. Ronald Harwood (The Pianist) adapted the screenplay. The film, budgeted at $35 million-$40 million, is set to begin production in Brazil on Aug. 15.
