The Spanish actress is reportedly in talks to join Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides — the fourth installment of the movie series being directed by Rob Marshall.
Depp will reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow; Cruz’s character details are being kept under wraps, though it’s believed she is to be Sparrow’s foil and equal in many ways, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Pirates will start filming in Hawaii this summer. Disney plans for a May 20, 2011, release.
Cruz recently admitted she’s still in awe of her own success.
“I still can’t believe that I won the Oscar last year because of the way I grew up,” said the star, who bagged the Best Supporting Actress gong for her role in Woody Allen film Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
“Just to dream about becoming an actress and making a living out of that sounded like science fiction in my environment. You know, I come from a family where we had just what we needed to survive. So to dream about this type of job was crazy.
“If I hadn’t had the discipline of all those years in the dance world, it would have been much, much tougher.
“I mean, it goes too far sometimes. I mean, I used to take my toenails — they would die from dancing — so I would just take the whole toenail and throw it away, and not feel anything.
“But I loved it.”
