Erick Elías wants your life..
The 42-year-old Mexican actor will star in the Salma Hayek-produced film Quiero Tu Vida for TelevisaUnivision’s Vix+ as production begins in Mexico City.
Quiero Tu Vida follows Nico (Elías), a young soccer player whose promising career comes to a sudden end when he suffers a devastating injury on the field. Eight years later, Nico turns into a bitter man who keeps fantasizing about what his life could have been.
When the universe magically gives him an opportunity to live the life he always dreamed of, Nico learns that fame and glory can be deceitful and sometimes happiness comes in the most unexpected ways.
The film, based on a script by José Tamez and Garcia Castro, is produced by Hayek and Tamez under their Ventanarosa banner along with Jorge Garcia Castro. Jorge Colón serves as director.
This is the first project under TelevisaUnivision’s recently announced first-look deal with Ventanarosa Productions to produce Spanish-language feature films exclusively for Vix+.
Elias’ previous credits include DKDA: Sueños de juventud, Gitanas, Locas de Amor and Betty en NY.
