Catherine Zeta Jones To Play Drug Baron
Catherine Zeta Jones is playing real life Colombian drug baron Griselda Blanco The Godmother – a biopic to be directed by Eva Sorhaug, the writer / director responsible for 2012’s Norwegian hit 90 Minutes.
Blanco was responsible for hundreds of assassinations. Known as La Madrana, which means Black Widow, she was a member of the Medellin Cartel, which fuelled a massive chunk of Miami’s drug trade during the ’70s and ’80s.
Nicholas Pileggi will executive produce the film to be scripted by Frank Baldwin. Daniela Cretu serves as producer for First Born Films.
The Godmother is slated to roll before the cameras in 2015.
