It’s padre time for Luis Guzman…
The 60-year-olld Puerto Rican actor will star opposite Tim Roth and Nick Nolte in Darius Films’ forthcoming drama The Padre.
Directed by Jonathan Sobol from a script by Stephen Kunc, the film will also star Colombian actress Valeria Henriquez.
The Padre tells the story of the Padre (Roth), a small-time con man on the run from his dogged pursuers, U.S. Court Justice Nemes (Nolte) and local police officer Gaspar (Guzmán). When the Padre is caught mid-con, he flees the scene in a stolen car, unaware that a precocious 16-year-old girl, Lena (Henriquez), is stowing away in the back seat. After she blackmails him into letting her join his journey, the duo plan their biggest heist yet — not always aware of the dangers of working with each other and the law closing in on them.
Guzmán is a regular on the CBS medical drama Code Black. His other film credits include The Do-Over, Keanu, Top Five, We’re The Millers and Turbo.
The Padre is shooting in Bogota, Colombia.
