OSCAR nominee Jude Law will both produce and star in a new romantic drama for movie giant Paramount.

The Cold Mountain hunk, 31, has already made two films back-to-back for the company - remake Alfie and sci-fi film SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW.

In the new project, the British heart-throb will play an American worker struggling against poverty when he and his wife are laid off by a local factory.

Law has admitted throwing himself into work following his divorce from wife Sadie Frost in October (03).
