HOLLYWOOD — John Leguizamo will next star in “Cronicas,” a Spanish-language thriller to be produced and financed by Alfonso Cuaron’s Monsoon Entertainment.
Written and directed by Sebastian Cordero, “Cronicas” follows a popular TV reporter who’s willing to sacrifice everything to get the story of a notorious serial killer. Leonor Watling (“Talk to Her”) also stars. Pic will shoot in Ecuador.
Cordero, who previously directed “Ratas, Ratones, Rateros,” received the 2002 Sundance/NHK Intl.

Leguizamo, who recently signed on to reprise the voice of Sid for “Ice Age 2,” makes his directorial debut and stars in HBO Films’ upcoming boxing drama “Undefeated.” He is repped by the William Morris Agency and managed by 3 Arts.
