Salma Hayek Gets Romantic With Disney
Actress will play the object of desire for two men
The actress will star in and produce an untitled romantic comedy for Walt Disney Pictures, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Written by Ed Decter and John Strauss ("Santa Clause" films), the story centers on a beautiful woman (Hayek) whose fiancee is a rather steady, conservative doctor who discovers to his chagrin that his lady's ex-boyfriend is an international Latin superstar who wants her back.
Hayek received an Oscar nomination for playing the titular role in 2002's "Frida." Her other credits include "Desperado," "Fools Rush In," "Wild Wild West," "After the Sunset," "Bandidas" and "Ask the Dust" (which won her Mr. Skin's top honors for best nude scene of 2006). She is also working with Disney doing voice work on "South of the Border."
She's also a Golden Globe-winning producer on ABC's "Ugly Betty," for which she made guest appearances. "Ugly Betty" has 11 Emmy nominations, including one for Hayek for guest actress in a comedy series.
