Eugenio Derbez Comedy ‘How to Be a Latin Lover’ Casts McKenna Grace
Ken Marino is directing the story about an aging Latin lover — played by Derbez — who gets dumped by his sugar mama and is forced to return to live with his estranged sister and her preteen son in their humble home.
Grace plays the role of the granddaughter of a very wealthy woman. Grace joins Rob Lowe, Kristen Bell, Raquel Welch and Rob Riggle in the cast.
“Latin Lover” is a joint venture between 3Pas Studios, Pantelion Films, Lionsgate and Televisa Cine. The project marks Derbez’s first English-language starring role and is also 3Pas Studio’s first film under its first-look deal with Pantelion.
Derbez is producing with Ben Odell through their company 3Pas Studios. Mike Upton is an executive producer.
