Odd Lot Entertainment, Lionsgate and Videocine on Thursday announced the start of pre-production on "From Prada to Nada," an English-language, Mexico-U.S. co-production.
Described as "a whimsical spin" on Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility," the film follows two spoiled sisters, left penniless when their father dies suddenly, who move in with their estranged aunt in East L.A.
Fina Torres ("Woman on Top") directs and co-wrote the script with Los Angeles-based playwright-performer Luis Alfaro.
Cast includes Adriana Barraza, Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Wilmer Valderrama and Kuno Becker.
“We were intrigued by the prospect of supporting this creative property with our unique strategic distribution relationship with Videocine,” said Lionsgate president/co-COO Steve Beeks.
Lionsgate will distribute in North America and Odd Lot International will be selling foreign territories at the upcoming American Film Market.
