Voy goes ‘Public’ with pic

English-lingo film to include Spanish-language elements

Fledgling U.S. Latino shingle Voy Pictures has unveiled its debut pic “Public Emily,” an action-adventure romp to be directed by L.A.-based Argentine helmer Gabriella Tagliavini (“Ladies Night”).

Story, written by GiGi New, follows a jet-setting heiress who comes of age while lost in the jungles of South America. Pic is set in Colombia but may shoot in Mexico, Argentina or Costa Rica. Budget will range between $3 million and $5 million.

“This is exactly the kind of movie we have been looking for — one that straddles both the English- and Spanish-speaking worlds,” Voy Pictures prexy Lourdes Diaz said. Pic will shoot mainly in English but include Spanish-language elements.

Tagliavini’s feature directorial debut, “The Woman Every Man Wants,” won helmer awards at the 2001 New York Independent Film Festival; No-Dance Film Festival in Park City, Utah; and Latino Film Festival in San Francisco.

Her sophomore effort, “Ladies Night,” was Mexico’s No. 1 pic in 2003. It is slated for a U.S. release by Televisa Cine next month.

New has written for Nickelodeon’s award-winning “The Brothers Garcia” and for Fox’s “The Ortegas,” starring Cheech Marin. “Public Emily” is New’s first feature.
