Farhadi’s upcoming film is a drama about winemakers in rural Spain. Farhadi is also the screenwriter for the project.

Cruz and Bardem are each Academy Award winners for Best Supporting Actress and Actor roles, respectively. Farhadi, linking up with this power couple, will create quite a trifecta of a trio.
