Milian, who previously starred on the Netflix film Falling Inn Love and appeared on Netflix’s series Soundtrack, will star opposite Jay Pharoah, and Sinqua Walls will star in the film, which is being directed by Steven Tsuchida.

The script was co-written by Dana Schmalenberg and Rheeqrheeq Chainey. It centers around an aspiring pop star, Erica, who ends up as the entertainment at her ex-fiancé’s wedding after reluctantly taking a gig at a luxurious island resort while in the wake of a music career meltdown. She tries to keep their past relationship a secret from his bride-to-be Beverly, but Erica rediscovers her feelings for her ex, Jason, despite his brother Caleb’s attempts to keep them from falling back in love. The question soon becomes will Erica sing at Beverly’s wedding – or her own?

Filming will take place in Mauritius.

Milian, known for her hit singles  “AM to PM,” “Dip It Low” and “Whatever U Want,” has previously starred in A Snow Globe Christmas and East Los High.

First Watch: Mars’ “It Will Rain” Video

It’s time for Bruno Mars to experience what Twilight fever’s all about…

The 25-year-old half Puerto Rican crooner’s video for the lead single from the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 soundtrack is streaming now online.

Mars’ “It Will Rain” video isn’t necessarily a peek into the fourth installment of the international smash vampire movie franchise. Instead, with its soft-focus shots and faded lighting, it looks more like a commercial for Levi’s.

Some “Twilight Saga” footage of newlyweds Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) is featured briefly in the video, projected on a wall as Mars and his lover struggle through a break-up.

Meanwhile, the 15-track “Breaking Dawn” soundtrack, which features the first Spanish-language song on any Twilight film soundtrack, is on sale now.

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 opens nationwide on November 18.

Breaking Ground? Twilight’s First Spanish Song

There’s a little sabor Latino on the soundtrack to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1

Twilight Breaking Dawn

Along with part-Puerto Rican doo-wop singer Bruno Mars’ “It Will Rain,” the new album features a Spanish track written and performed by Argentinean actress/singer Mia Maestro, who plays the matriarch of the vegetarian Denali coven in the much-anticipated film.

The ballad  “Llovera” is the only Spanish-language song to ever be featured on any of the Twilight soundtracks.

“It’s nice to know that millions of people who are going to go see this film are going to hear my song,” Maestro told Latina.com about the song. “It’s quite exciting!”

So  how did the 33-year-old actress/singer—who starred opposite Jennifer Garner on ABC’s Alias—end up scoring the first Spanish song on the Twilight soundtracks ?

“I was working on my album while I was shooting the movie,” recalls Maestro. “Everyone was aware that I was finishing my record and [the film’s director] Bill Condon wanted to hear it. He did and he really loved it and he said he was going to see if there was any part in the film where he could find placement for it.”

Well, it appears he has… But Maestro can only hint at where in the movie it appears:

“A beautiful moment in the film—I can’t say which one, but I hope people will love it.”

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 soundtrack is available now.

Meanwhile, the film opens nationwide on November 18.
