Watch: Andy Garcia in Epic Trailer for Period War Drama 'Cristiada'
Back in June of 2010 one of our Casting Tidbits featured an impressive list of talent joining a Mexican historical epic called Cristiada. Starring Andy Garcia (Ocean's Eleven), Nestor Carbonell (The Dark Knight), Eva Longoria ("Desperate Housewives") and Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek), the film was said to focus on the 1926-29 Cristeros war, started by a rebellion over the Mexican government's 1917 attempt to remove the influence of the Catholic Church and secularize the country. Now we have our first look at the film by way of an impressive and epic trailer that really has me hoping this film gets released. See it below!
Visual effects wizard Dean Wright (who has worked on Lord of the Rings and Chronicles of Narnia) makes his directorial debut from a script by Michael Love. More talent behind the camera includes editor Richard Francis-Bruce (who worked on The Shawshank Redemption and Se7en) and masterful composer James Horner, the man responsible for the scores of such films as Titanic, Avatar, A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13 and many more. Unfortunately it's not clear when this film might see release, but with talent like this, hopefully it will be sooner than later. We'll definitely keep you guys updated on anything we hear about it. Thoughts?
