Maya involved in 'Preparation for a Murder'

Will produce and distribute the thriller

NEW YORK -- Maya Entertainment is planning intense "Preparation for a Murder."

The Los Angeles-based outfit will produce and distribute Jonathan and R.M. Robinson's urban thriller. Their feature writing and directing debut chronicles the events that unfold as two young men embark on a hit without realizing the repercussions that come with it.

Luis Guerrero and Chris Lemos of Vital Pictures (Screen Gems' "Armored") will produce with Maya's Sandra Avila, who will oversee production on behalf of her studio. Casting is now under way, and principal photography is slated for April.

Maya debuted this year with a mission to produce and distribute features for the growing U.S. Latino marketplace. The company recently announced production on the drama "American Tragic," starring producer America Ferrera and Melissa Leo.
