It seems that the great Maria Felix is about to come alive on screen. This is all thanks to the new project undertaken by some of the biggest names. It seems that Eiza Gonzalez, who is from famous movies such as Baby Driver and I Care A Lot will be acting in the biopic. Secondly, the biopic will be directed by Matthew Heineman, who is an Emmy and an Oscar nominated director. They have ended up revealing that they are looking for a Latin American writer to author the script.
Therefore, since this good project is underway, let us get down to talking about it. It has been revealed that Gonzalez will end up playing the character of Felix and will also be producing. It will also be produced by Dana Harris and Nicole King for Linden Entertainment.
Maria Felix: Who was she?
This is the first time that her estate is being used to tell her story. She was one of the biggest Mexican stars of her time. Hence, we are excited about it. If you do not know about her, you should know that she has starred in about 47 films in her lifetime. Her career has spanned from Mexico, Argentina and Italy. Moreover, she was the queen of the silver screen and was also known as La Dona.
We should also talk about what Gonzalez had to say about this story. She said – “Maria’s tenacity and fierce way of living through some of the hardest adversity I’ve witnessed has inspired me and many more […] I’m incredibly honored to be playing her and to be bringing her voice and story to the world. Maria constantly pushed boundaries and lived by her own rules, while the world tried to tear her down.”
So, we hope that this project turns out to be amazing.
