Matt Lauria And Cristina Rodlo Join Gina Rodriguez In ‘Miss Bala’ Remake | Film News
According to Variety, Kingdom star Matt Lauria and newcomer Cristina Rodlo have joined the cast of Sony’s Miss Bala remake starring Gina Rodriguez. The script, which was written by original director Gerardo Naranjo and Mauricio Katz, will be adapted by Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer.
Producers of the female-driven action thriller are Kevin Misher and Pablo Cruz with executive producer Andy Berman.
Based on the 2011 Oscar-nominated pic, the story follows a woman who, after her friend goes missing in Tijuana, finds herself a pawn in a dangerous game being played by the CIA, the DEA, and a charismatic young crime boss.
Lauria is mostly known for his roles on shows like Friday Night Lights and Parenthood and currently has a role on the Audience drama Kingdom.
This marks Rodlo’s first crossover project. Rodlo is currently a series regular on the NBC Universo series El Vato, which finished shooting last month. Rodlo can currently be seen on Fox Latin America’s 2091.
