Also producing are Emilio Diez Barroso and Darlene Caamano Loquet of NALA Films, which is fully financing the pic.
NALA is behind "Ceremony," the directorial debut of Max Winkler that stars Michael Angarano and Uma Thurman and premieres Monday at the Toronto International Film Festival.
WME-repped Garcia Bernal, best known for such films as "The Motorcycle Diaries" and "Amores Perros," most recently appeared in "Letters to Juliet" with Amanda Seyfried.
Luna's most recent major English-language work was Gus van Sant's "Milk." He is repped by WME.
Rodriguez, repped by ICM and manager Ivan De Paz, starred in the telenovela "Dona Barbara" and appeared on HBO's "Entourage."
