Yvette Monreal, who was a regular on Robert Rodriguez’ Matador TV series, has booked a leading role in the untitled lowrider project from Universal Pictures, Blumhouse Productions and Imagine Entertainment.
Gabriel Chavarria, Demian Bichir and Theo Rossi are starring in the inspirational drama that is set in the youth culture of East Los Angeles’ world of lowrider cars and street tagging.
The story tells of a teen (Chavarria) caught between his traditional father (Bichir) and his estranged gangbanger brother, Ghost (Rossi), who are both competing in the annual lowrider “Supershow.”
Monreal will portray the romantic interest for Chavarria, taking on the role of a smart, talented maverick of a girl who is a fellow tagger but who also has a scholarship to Columbia University in New York.
Ricardo de Montreuil is directing.
Monreal, who is repped by APA and Koopman Management, has also recurred on MTV’s Faking It.
