Diego Luna reveals new details of "Mr. Pig" movie
“’Mr. Pig' is a beautiful road movie, and a chance to talk about love for Mexico through the eyes of an American": that's Pablo Cruz, Mr. Pig producer, defining the next project by Diego Luna. Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon, The Color Purple) and Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids) will star in this English-language road movie set in Mexico.
Written by Luna and Augusto Mendoza, this will be the second movie in English for Luna in a directing role and explores his humorous side; Mr. Pig turns on a farm-worker, Variety explains, who travels from the U.S. to Mexico, accompanied by a pig.
This article also explains that "Mr. Pig marks a further play by Canana, one of Mexico’s most international companies, for audiences in the U.S. and Mexico, as a movie’s home markets, and beyond in the rest of the world". “It’s has a U.S. appeal because of Danny and its English-language. It’s obviously has a Mexican appeal because of Diego and other Mexican actors involved. And we’re looking to Mundial to take it into international markets,” Canana’s Pablo Cruz told Variety.
