Bill Pullman and John Leguizamo are attached to star in “Celestina” for Esperanza Productions says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story is described as a surreal tale of a pregnant woman’s search for the father of her child.
Jose Rivera (“The Motorcycle Diaries”) will direct the project which Walter Salles is executive producing. A 2010 release is expected.
Esperanza is also developing “Apples”, a film adaptation of Donald Harington’s 2004 novel “With” that stars Bobby Cannavale.
