Well, sort of. Eva Mendes, probably best known for her role in the Will Smith comedy "Hitch," is about to get serious.

Word on the street is that the brunette beauty will shoot scenes next month for the upcoming film, "Holly Motors," from director Leos Carax (the French guy auteur behind the notorious "Pola X" and "Les Amants du Pont Neuf").

According to Hollywood Wire Tap, the drama follows a day in the life of a young actor (played by Denis Lavant) as he moves from one set to another, sharing scenes with various partners.

Juliette Binoche ("The English Patient") and Kylie Minogue (diva extraordinaire) also star.

If rumors are true, the film is already pretty much done and now is just waiting for an extra sequence to be shot next month with the newcomer Mendes. We can only wait and see if she'll be able to hold her own with this impressive group of thesps. After all, this is a far cry from "The Other Guys."
