Diaz joins Del Toro action flick?

Cameron Diaz is set to team up with Benicio del Toro in action comedy Agent: Century 21.

The pair, who were previously attached in romantic comedy An Ex To Grind, have come aboard Adam Hashemi's directorial debut, reported Collider.com.

Cameron - who next stars in What To Expect When You're Expecting alongside Jennifer Lopez and Cheryl Cole - will play a recently divorced mother, who gets kidnapped and caught up in a drug war after taking a trip to Mexico.

Benicio's role has not been announced in the movie, which has been written by Stuart Little's Greg Brooker and is expected to start shooting in September.

Producers Nigel Sinclair and Guy East said: "Agent: Century 21 is an adrenaline-infused comedy which brings together two of the hottest stars in Hollywood. It's a dream combination and... it doesn't get much better than this."

Next up for Benicio, who won an Oscar for his performance in 2000's Traffic, is Oliver Stone's thriller Savages alongside Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson.

The Puerto Rican actor, 45, will also make his directorial debut in Spanish-language anthology film, 7 Days In Havana.
