Gina Rodriguez plays a dangerous game in the first trailer for “Miss Bala,” in which she plays a woman who has to work for a crime boss after witnessing a murder.
Entertainment Weekly released the first trailer for “Miss Bala,” as well as some first look images. In the trailer, Rodriguez’s character travels to Tijuana after the death of her parents, and while at a club, a group of criminals come in with guns and kidnap her best friend. However, the American police are on to her, and Rodriguez’s character must play both sides to survive.
“In the end, the bullet settles everything,” says Miss Bala.
Catherine Hardwicke directs the action film that also stars Anthony Mackie and Matt Lauria. Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer wrote the screenplay. The film is an adaptation of Mexico’s 2011 Oscar submission for the Best Foreign Language Film.
Kevin Misher of Misher Films and Pablo Cruz of Canana Films are producing the remake with Jamie Marshall, Samson Mucke and Arturo Sampson executive producing.
“Miss Bala” will hit theaters on Jan. 25.
