Baby Driver’s Eiza Gonzalez to star in Paradise Hills
Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver) will be starring alongside Emma Roberts (American Horror Story) and Danielle Macdonald (Patti Cake$) in Alice Waddington’s directorial debut, Paradise Hills. The movie is a sci-fi thriller written by Brian DeLeeuw, Nacho Vigalondo, and Sofia Cuenca.
In Paradise Hills, Roberts plays Uma, the daughter of a magnate who commits suicide after his company is targeted for hostile takeover by a predatory billionaire named Son Prescott. Prescott decides to marry Uma, but only after kidnapping and sending her to Paradise Hills, a private sanitarium where she is to have her mind systematically destroyed. Gonzalez will play Amarna, a tough Paradise Hills resident who might be Uma’s only hope in escaping the nightmare.
Gonzalez became a breakout star in the Edgar Wright-directed Baby Driver and has an upcoming untitled Robert Zemeckis project coming this fall (starring Steve Carell). She also stars in the Robert Rodriguez-directed Alita: Battle Angel, which acts as a reunion between the actress and director after she starred in Rodriguez’s series version of From Dusk Till Dawn.
