Danny Glover and Maya Rudolph are set to star in Diego Luna‘s road movie “Mr. Pig,” which will take place in Mexico, and will follow a farm-worker (Glover) who travels from the U.S. to Mexico, joined by a pig whom he strikes up a friendship with.
A more light-hearted, comedic turn than his last film, “Cesar Chavez,” producer Pablo Cruz of Luna’s Canana production shingle calls “Mr Pig” “a beautiful road movie, and a chance to talk about love for Mexico through the eyes of an American,” adding that, “It has a U.S. appeal because of Danny and its English-language. It’s obviously has a Mexican appeal because of Diego and other Mexican actors involved. And we’re looking to Mundial to take it into international markets.”
Luna and Augusto Mendoza wrote the script.
The film is being produced through Canana, which was founded by Luna, Gael Garcia Bernal, and Pablo Cruz.
Mundial is managing international sales. The film is currently in production.
