John Singleton is making his first incursion into urban Latino territory. Multihyphenate will produce drama “Illegal Tender,” with “Empire’s” Franc Reyes attached to direct. Project has sparked the interest of several domestic distribs. Reyes’ script tracks a young Latino man on the run with his mother from thugs who killed his father. Casting talks are under way with top reggaeton artist Tego Calderon, Rick Gonzalez, Wanda De Jesus and Zoe Saldana. Reggaeton music, while not the centerpiece of the story, will dominate the soundtrack. Reyes is currently in Puerto Rico location scouting and hiring local crew.
