Anne Lu - Celebrity News Service News Writer

Los Angeles, CA (CNS) - Latin actors Adriana Barraza, Camilla Belle, Wilmer Valderrama, Kuno Becker, and Alexa Vega (L to R) are set to star in an upcoming English-language Mexican-U.S. co-production film "From Prada to Nada."

Fina Torres, the Cannes Golden Camer-winner and Alma-nominated director, will be helming the contemporary take of the Jane Austen classic "Sense and Sensibility."

The Odd Lot Entertainment, Lionsgate, and Videocine film will follow the tale of two spoiled sisters who, after the sudden death of their father, are left penniless. They are forced to move in with their estranged aunt in East Los Angeles, where they ultimately find romance, as well as love for their culture.

Torres co-wrote the script with Luis Alfaro.

This should be interesting. A latin take on the story is hard to picture, the societies are so different.

It should be interesting.

Alexa Vega: from Spy Kids to Austen. I'm assuming she'll be the Marianne character. Interesting...
