Although we weren’t fans of her break-out Filly Brown at Sundance; according to THR, star Gina Rodriguez will get another chance at fame, landing the lead role in an upcoming film by writer/director Nicole Gomez Fisher titled Sleeping With Fishes.
Rodriguez will be playing a “young woman who, after the death of her cheating husband, must return home to her dysfunctional cross-cultural family. With the help of her quirky, comic-book obsessed sister (Ana Oritz) and a possible new romance on the horizon, she begins to realize that one must lose everything in life to discover what has been buried there all along.”
Although the reviews for Brown weren’t very strong across the board, her role as the titular character did generate some buzz for the Chicago native. She’s also been seen in Go For It!, Our Family Wedding, as well a guest appearance on Happy Endings. The starlet will be seen next in a recurring role on the series No Names, and the indie drama California Winter, out sometime this year.
Courtney Andrialis will be producing Sleeping With Fishes, which is scheduled to begin shooting this month in Brooklyn.
