Valery M. Ortiz is embracing the skeletons in the closet…
The 37-year-old Puerto Rican actress and model will star opposite Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding Jr in the horror film Skeletons in the Closet.
Shooting is getting underway this week in Las Vegas on the film that will also star Clifton Powell.
The film is about the spirit of La Llorona granting a costly wish to the parents of a child by curing her of cancer. In saving the child, the mother of the child suffers the consequences by losing her beloved husband and becoming more evil until she pledges her allegiance to La Llorona. The father (Howard) spirals down the path of self-destruction after borrowing hard money from a ruthless mobster to pay the hospital bills for his daughter.
Lance Kawas is directing from a script by Koji Steven Sakai and Joshua A. Cohen.
The original story comes from Al Bravo.
Ortiz’s previous credits include South of Nowhere, Gabby Duran & the Unsittables, Hit the Floor and Diary of a Single Mom.
