International acting stud Javier Bardem and well-rounded movie director Mike Newell are about to bring the Pulitzer Prize-winning "Love in the Time of Cholera" to the big screen for New Line. Adding just a little more pedigree to the mix is screenewriter Ronald Harwood.

Says The Hollywood Reporter: "Javier Bardem is set to star in the epic "Love in the Time of Cholera," which Mike Newell is directing for New Line Cinema. Based on the novel by Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, "Cholera" follows a romantic young man (Bardem) who loses the girl of his dreams to a wealthier suitor and consequently spends the next 50 years building his life and reputation so that one day he might have her. Other women find this devotion irresistible, so he finds himself with frequent female companionship throughout his wait, but his heart always remains faithful to the woman who first captured his heart."

Mr. Bardem is known best for performances in "The Sea Inside," "The Dancer Upstairs," and "Before Night Falls."

Mike Newell’s films include "Four Weddings and a Funeral," "Donnie Brasco," and "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire."

Ronald Harwood wrote "The Pianist," "Being Julia," and Roman Polanski‘s rendition of "Oliver Twist."
