Eva Longoria’s latest project will be released in the United States and Canada…
Magnolia Pictures has acquired the U.S. and Canada rights to Frontera, starring the 38-year-old Mexican American actress, Michael Peña and Ed Harris.
Directed by Michael Berry from his script with Luis Moulinet III, the drama follows Miguel (Peña), a hardworking father and devoted husband who crosses the border illegally and is wrongfully accused of murdering the wife of a former sheriff (Harris). Miguel’s pregnant wife (Longoria) lands in the hands of corrupt coyotes as she tries to help her husband, while the ex-lawman investigates his wife’s death and unearths evidence that could destroy one family’s future.
Magnolia is reportedly planning for a 2014 theatrical release.
The deal was sealed in Los Cabos, Mexico, during the second annual Baja International Film Festival.
