Bardem is 'Biutiful', and I'm Comfortable Admitting That

Javier Bardem has been signed to star in Biutiful, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's upcoming film that spells "beautiful" with an... "i"? Weird. From Variety:

Javier Bardem will star in Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's "Biutiful," the Mexican helmer's first project after his much-publicized bust-up with former screenwriting partner Guillermo Arriaga.

Spanish-language pic "Biutiful," which Gonzalez Inarritu wrote, shoots on location in Barcelona next week.

Pic is about a man embroiled in shady dealings who is confronted by a childhood friend, now a policeman.

Yikes, it's Gonzalez Inarritu's first film since breaking up with his writing partner. This could be weird. Hopefully the script won't have any awkward mentions of "someone staying out all night writing with his friends while I sit at home alone worrying, and writing" or "the way you ogle younger writers while we're out, writing." Don't make me pick sides!
