Producer Robert Moresco (“Million Dollar Baby,” “Crash”) and Artist Relations Group will produce a biopic about Fidel Castro’s exiled daughter Alina Fernandez says Variety.
Set in 1958, the story begins after Castro seized control of Cuba, with Fernandez as a young girl naive to the fact that the bearded cigar smoker who secretly visits her mother and the man she sees on TV are one and the same. Fernandez eventually fled Cuba disguised as a Spanish tourist in 1993.
The story will also interweave other historical perspectives. Castro recently ceded power to his brother Raul after almost 50 years in power.
