Hayek Starring in and Producing Rom-Com


Salma Hayek will star in and produce an untitled romantic comedy that Walt Disney Pictures picked up from screenwriters Ed Decter and John Strauss. Jose Tamez, Hayek’s partner at Ventanarosa, also is on board as a producer.

The story follows a conservative doctor who gets the surprise of his life when he learns that the ex-boyfriend of his fiancee (Hayek) is an international Latin superstar who has come to Los Angeles to win her back.

Decter and Strauss’ credits include Disney’s The Santa Clause 2 and The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause and the animated movie “The Wild.” Decter also directed The New Guy.
