Diego Luna joins star-studded cast of Berlin, I Love You

Orlando Bloom and Gemma Arterton are also in negotiations to appear in the upcoming romance anthology film.

Diego Luna has signed on to join the star-studded cast of Berlin, I Love You.

The romance anthology film is set to be the third instalment in the Cities of Love franchise, following on from 2006's Paris je t'aime (Paris, I Love You) and 2008's New York, I Love You.

Set on the streets of the German capital, the upcoming movie will feature 10 different stories and explore themes of love and relationships, with several directors handling each story.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Luna will star in a segment of the film to be helmed by Mexican director Fernando Eimbcke. It was previously announced that Jack Huston and Sophie Turner will appear in a sequence by Tom Van Avermaet.

Other major names in talks to star in the movie include Orlando Bloom and Gemma Arterton, while it is believed that Patrick Dempsey and Renee Zellweger are set to make their directorial debuts with segments of the film, and will also act in the project.

Among the others linked to the project are German directors Til Schweiger, Dennis Gansel and Dani Levy, as well as Massy Tadjedin and Shekhar Kapur.

As well as the Hollywood stars, Berlin-based singer Max Raabe and music producer Paul Kalkbrenner are set to be a part of the project.

Claus Clausen from Walk on Water Films will produce the anthology, alongside Josef Steinberger, Edda Reiser and Alice de Sousa. Clausen hopes to begin shooting the film in July (17), and wants to invoke the spirit of the city in each segment.

"We will shoot almost everywhere," he told the publication. "We will try to cover all the famous landmarks."

Luna was last seen in Star Wars spin-off Rogue One, and has also appeared in The Book of Life and Cesar Chavez. His next film is Flatliners, which co-stars Nina Dobrev and Ellen Page, and is slated to hit theatres in September (17).

A release date for Berlin, I Love You has yet to be announced.
