Eiza González is searching for the fountain of youth…
The 33-year-old Mexican actress and singer will star opposite John Krasinski and Natalie Portman in Apple‘s Fountain of Youth.
Written by James Vanderbilt, the film follows estranged siblings (Krasinski and Portman) who partner on a global heist to find the mythological Fountain of Youth. They must use their knowledge of history to follow clues on an epic adventure that will change their lives — and possibly lead to immortality.
Hailing from a first-look partnership between Apple and Skydance, Fountain of Youth has been a high priority for Skydance after getting a script from Vanderbilt that Deadline sources said “blew execs away,” but the studio needed the right package of talent before it moved forward with the film. Ritchie, who has been as busy as any director in town, had been eyeing the project since the spring, with Krasinski also circling it around the same time, but the dual strikes forced things to be put on pause.
The project reunites González with director Ritchie for a third time after recently wrapping production on their most recent collaboration on a new, untitled action film in which González stars alongside Jake Gyllenhaal and Henry Cavill. González will also star opposite Cavill in Ritchie’s upcoming The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, which will be released in theaters on April 19th.
González will next lead David Benioff and D.B Weiss’ series, 3 Body Problem for Netflix. The series debuts on the streaming platform on March 21st. She will also soon be starring in the boxing limited series, La Maquina, opposite Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna. The show will debut as Hulu’s first Spanish language series. Also upcoming, González will star in the mystery sci-fi movie ASH directed by the musician Flying Lotus (aka Steven Ellison) opposite Aaron Paul.
