Gina Rodriguez packs some heat in Miss Bala vignette
Sony Pictures has released a new behind-the-scenes vignette for the upcoming action film Miss Bala, starring Gina Rodriguez. The brief clip, titled “Transformation,” teases Gloria Meyer’s transformation after she is drawn into the dangerous world of cross-border crime. You can see the clip in the player below!
Miss Bala follows a beauty contest winner who is forced to work for a crime boss after she witnesses a murder. Gina Rodriguez (Annihilation, Jane the Virgin) plays Gloria Meyer, who finds herself a pawn in a dangerous game being played by the CIA, the DEA, and a charismatic young crime boss named Lino (Ismael Cruz Cordova). Gloria finds a power she never knew she had when she is drawn into the dangerous world of cross-border crime, and surviving will require all of her cunning, inventiveness, and strength.
Along with Rodriguez and Mackie, Miss Bala stars Aislinn Derbez (The House of Flowers), Cristina Rodlo (Too Old to Die Young), and Ricardo Abarca (Besieged).
The American remake of Miss Bala is based on the 2011 Mexican drama, which earned an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Film. The remake is directed by Catherine Hardwicke (This Is Us) from the adapted screenplay by Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer.
Miss Bala will arrive in theaters on February 1.
