Rodriguez, Boneta Team For “El Gato Negro”

Rodriguez Boneta Team For El Gato Negro

“Alita: Battle Angel” filmmaker Robert Rodriguez and “Rock of Ages” actor Diego Boneta are teaming up for “El Gato Negro,” an adaptation of Richard Dominguez’s Mexican comic book which will be set up at Apple TV+ as a series.

Richard Dominguez created the comic which centers on the intergenerational exploits of two crime-fighting heroes in South Texas.

The first hero is a young man who takes up the mantle of a fabled local hero to avenge the death of his best friend while the other was his grandfather, a lucha (Mexican wrestler) who turned to crime-busting decades earlier.

Boneta stars and executive produces while Rodriguez will direct and executive produce with MGM Television producing. Eric Carrasco (“Supergirl”) reportedly came up with a pitch that made the project work.
