Liotta, Morales & Cruz Join Linea

Ray Liotta, Esai Morales and Valerie Cruz will star in James Cotten’s crime drama “La Linea” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Loosely based on the infamous Arellano Felix drug cartel, Andy Garcia is in early talks to play an ill kingpin of a Tijuana drug cartel whose violent lieutenant (Morales) takes over the operation and becomes a loose cannon.

Liotta will play a veteran Los Angeles-based assassin who is hired to kill him. Cruz will play Olivia, a meth addict living in Tijuana who is struggling to kick the habit for the sake of her daughter.

Armand Assante, Joe Morton, Danny Trejo, Kevin Cage and Jason Connery are in final negotiations to join the cast. R. Ellis Frazier wrote the screenplay and filming is scheduled to begin October 16th in Los Angeles and Tijuana.
