The ensemble cast for the English language adaptation From Prada to Nada has been announced, and it’s filled with a who’s who of Latin American actors. The film will be a collaboration between Lionsgate, Videocine and Odd Entertainment, that will add a Latina twist to the classic Jane Austen novel, Sense and Sensibility.
The cast for From Prada to Nada will include, Adriana Barraza (Babel, Drag Me to Hell, Amores Perros), Camilla Belle (When A Stranger Calls), Alexa Vega (Spy Kids), Wilmer Valderrama (That 70′s Show) and Kuno Becker. The film will be directed by Fina Torres, who previously helmed Woman on Top. She also co-wrote the script with Luis Alfaro.
Here’s the brief synopsis of this take on the famous story.
From Prada to Nada follows two spoiled sisters when they are left penniless after the sudden death of their father. Forced to move in with their estranged aunt in East Los Angeles, this is a fish-out-of-water story where the girls ultimately find romance, as well as a love for their culture.
I have to admit that I’m happy to see Wilmer Valderrama getting some type of work these days. Seriously, what happened to his career?
What do you think of the cast for the movie?
