Latina Power!

Eiza González will produce and star in biopic about Mexican icon Maria Felix

Eiza Gonzalez has had a great year so far with multiple hit movies. To top it off, Gonzalez has scored one more win on her long list of successes as she was ranked among the highest-grossing actors. She recently became the newest ambassador for the high-end jewelry company Bulgari. And, there is an extra layer leaving the Mexican actress proud - she is the first Latina to be a North American Ambassador for the Italian company.

The Mexican actress and producer is now preparing for one for the most exciting acting challenges of her career. Gonzales will play Mexican icon María Félix in a biopic directed by Matthew Heineman, as reported on the Deadline site. The artist will play the ‘Cine de Oro’ diva and will also produce the film with Dana Harris and Nicole King for Linden Entertainment. In addition, it is known that Walter Rivera will be the executive producer of the film on behalf of the heirs of Felix.
