Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna have joined Will Ferrell on Nala Films’ Spanish language comedy Casa De MiPadre (The House Of My Father).
Affinity International is representing sales here and worldwide distribution president Brian O’Shea is in town to talk to buyers before principal photography commences later this month in California. CAA represents North American rights.
Matt Piedmont is directing from a screenplay by Andrew Steele. Ferrell is producing with his Gary Sanchez Production partners Adam McKay, Kevin Messick and Jessica Elbaum, as well as Emilio Diez Barroso and Nala’s Darlene Caamano Loquet.
Story details remain under wraps. Additional cast includes Pedro Armendariz Jr, Genesis Rodriguez, Hector Jimenez and Adrian Martinez.
“I cannot think of two better suited actors to star alongside Will in this film,” Caamano Loquet said. “Gael and Diego are great actors and we are thrilled they have signed on.”
“The cast for this high concept commercial film is truly exceptional,” O’Shea said. “I am very excited that we have a chance to bring this theatrical project to our independent buyers.”
