Eva Mendes


Coming out from the production of the noir film 'The Spirit', the co-star of Joaquin Phoenix in 'We Own the Night' is heading to a thriller movie as she is tapped to star in 'Queen of the South'.

Having just wrapped up the production of Frank Miller's "The Spirit", Eva Mendes, the co-star of Will Smith in dramedy "Hitch" has set her eyes on another feature film project. The 34-year-old Cuban-American actress is set to topline drama thriller for Warner Independent Pictures entitled "Queen of the South".

Taking the role of the main character, Mendes is going to portray a Mexican woman who becomes a Spanish drug lord to avenge the death of her boyfriend. For the movie, she will be teaming up with fellow actors, Josh Hartnett and Ben Kingsley, as well as with helmer Jonathan Jakubowicz.

"Queen" is adapted from Arturo Perez Reverte's best selling novel with the title of "La Reina del Sur". Made using the script provided by Jakubowicz and Albert Torres, the film will be filmed in Mexico and Spain in September 2008.

    Ditto Beto man. The actors guild is corrupt and not a friend of Mexican actors or actresses. Simply said some people just make their money off of our culture without reciprocating. Alas, the unfair world of the movie industry in America. Who knows maybe they think we're gardeners and maids. Big LOL...idiots. lvman1953

    How come they never cast Mexican women to play Mexican Women? Catherine Zeta Jones as Zorro's Wife, Jennifer Lopez as Selena, and now Eva Mendes as Teresa Mendoza aka Teresa La MEXICANA. What the hell is wrong with people? These women are very beautiful hispanc women, but they're not Mexican.
