Barbara De Regil is blacking out…
The 33-year-old Mexican actress has been cast in the action-thriller Blackout, starring Josh Duhamel, Abbie Cornish, Nick Nolte and Omar Chaparro.
Also joining are Jose Sefami and Hernan Del Riego. Shooting on the film is underway in Mexico City.
Blackout will follow Cain (Duhamel), who wakes up in a Mexican hospital with no memory. After meeting Anna (Cornish), he discovers who he is but soon finds himself fighting for his life as several warring cartel factions attack him, each looking for something he has stolen. Cain looks towards co-worker and mentor, DEA Agent McCoy (Nolte), for answers.
The Patriot Pictures (Synchronic) feature is being directed by Sam Macaroni, director of the VR fight sequences on John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum. The script comes from Van B. Nguyen. XYZ will launch world sales at the upcoming American Film Market.
De Regil is best known for her starring role in the La Femme Nikita-inspired action-crime-thriller TV series Rosario Tijeras from Sony Pictures Television and TV Azteca.
She has also starred in lead roles in films like the comedy feature Loca Por El Trabajo, opposite Adriana Barraza, and, most recently, Netflix’s Spanish-language comedy feature, Mutiny of the Worker Bees, opposite Gustavo Egelhaaf and Mexican star Alejandro Suárez.
