Nilo Cruz joins 'Castro's Daughter' team

Will co-write screenplay with Bobby Moresco

Nilo Cruz, a Pulitzer Prize winner for his play "Anna in the Tropics," has come aboard the independent film "Castro's Daughter."

He will co-write the screenplay with "Crash's" Bobby Moresco, who is also directing and producing the film, the story of Fidel Castro's exiled daughter, Alina Fernandez, who fled Cuba in 1993.

Cruz, who was born in Cuba, left the country in 1970 for the Little Havana section of Miami.

The film is aiming to go into production next year.

John Martinez and Noel Tristan of Austin-based Artists Relations Group originally acquired the rights to Fernandez's story and are producing with Moresco Productions, in association with Joe Lamy of The Lamy Group.
