Jose Maria Yazpik (“The Burning Plain”) has joined Jorge Fons’ “El Atentado” and Rodrigo Cortes’ “Buried” says The Hollywood Reporter.
Based on a historical novel, “Atentado” tells the true story of Arnulfo Arroyo (Yazpik), a young terrorist who in 1897 attempts to assassinate Mexican dictator Porfirio Diaz.
Daniel Jimenez-Cacho and Irene Azuela also star. Filming has begun in Mexico City.
Ryan Reynolds stars in “Buried” as a civilian contractor in Iraq who awakens in a coffin under the desert, armed only with a cell phone, a candle and a knife.
Yazpik will record the voice of an Iraqi insurgent who orchestrates the kidnap-for-ransom.
