Ana de Armas is gearing up to bring a little Felicidad to the big screen…
The 25-year-old Cuban actress has signed on to star in the Jonathan Jacubowicz-directed film about legendary boxer Roberto Duran, Hands of Stone.
de Armas, who will be making her English-language debut in the film, will portray Duran’s gorgeous wife Felicidad.
She’ll star alongside Edgar Ramirez, who’s playing the great fighter, Robert De Niro, who’s playing trainer Ray Arcel, and Usher, who’s playing Sugar Ray Leonard.
Hands of Stone centers on the life of the Panamanian boxer, who was nicknamed “Manos de Piedra” during his career.
