Bernal launches Spellbound Entertainment

Management-production shingle launches with Maria Montez biopic

Aida Bernal, a vet of Jennifer Lopez’ Nuyorican production banner, has launched talent management-production company Spellbound Entertainment.

Spellbound clients including Mexican film and television actress, Gabriela De La Garza; British actress India Wadsworth who will be making her big screen debut in “The Dark Knight Rises”; and Mexican television star Fernando Noriega and Ana Layevska.

First Spellbound project is a Maria Montez’s biopic starring Celines Toribio — a Dominican actress like Montez, who was a major Hollywood star in the 1940’s. The film is financed with support of Dominican government and film commission with production scheduled to start in the spring.

West Hollywood-based Spellbound will focus on repping talent and filmmakers from Latin America, the U.K. and other European territories. On the production side, it will develop and produce comedies and dramas for TV and film.

Bernal worked for seven years at Nuyorican as VP of film and TV development until last year.
