Bianca Santos has accepted a new invitation…
The 31-year-old Brazilian and Cuban American actress will star alongside Mischa Barton and Seamus Dever in Stephen Shimek’s indie thriller, Invitation to a Murder.
The film sees a reclusive billionaire invite six seemingly random strangers to his island estate, including aspiring detective Miranda Green (Barton). When another guest turns up dead, Miranda must get to the bottom of the plot behind the gathering to prove herself and maybe save her life.
Santos will play Carmen Blanco, a poor waitress from Seville who joins Green and Dever’s attorney Lawrence Kane as a guest at the mansion. She gets swept up in a romance with another guest, but when things take a deadly turn, she must decide whose side she’s on.
Brian O’Donnell penned the film, which is based on an original story by Gérard Miller.
It’s now in production in Chicago.
Zeus Zamani and Brian Vilim are producing, with ACE Entertainment’s Sebastien Semon and Jerome Reydner-Kalfon executive producing.
Santos is best known for her turn as Lexi Rivera in Freeform drama series The Fosters, and as Maya in The CW’s fantasy series Legacies.
The actress has previously starred on the film side in Ouija, The Duff and Priceless.
