Picturehouse Acquires Controversial Gloria Trevi Biopic (Trailer)

Picturehouse Acquires Controversial Gloria Trevi Biopic (Trailer)

Picturehouse plans a first quarter 2015 release for this Mexican musical drama by first-timer Christian Keller about Gloria Trevi, deemed the "Supreme Diva of Mexican Pop" by VH1.

The film traces Trevi’s rise to fame in the ’80s and ’90s, and her destructive and abuse relationship with manager/husband Sergio Andrade. "Gloria" also dives into her dark days in 2000, when she was accused of running a sex cult.

Written by Sabina Berman, the Rio Negro-produced film stars Sofia Espinosa in the title role. "Gloria" opens in Mexico in January. Trevi herself, allegedly, did not authorize the biopic. More on that scoop via THR here.
