‘Jane the Virgin’ Star Gina Rodriguez Joins Military Romance ‘Purple Hearts’

“Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez will star in Alloy Entertainment’s military romance “Purple Hearts” with Ben Lewin directing.

Elysa Dutton and Leslie Morgenstein of Alloy Features will produce alongside Amy Baer with Gidden Media. The script, written by Kyle Jarrow, centers on an aspiring musician — played by Rodriguez — and a soldier who fall in love after marrying under false pretenses.

Rodriguez came on board Lionsgate’s “Deepwater Horizon” last month. She won a Golden Globe in January for best actress in a comedy or musical for “Jane the Virgin.”

Her feature credits include “Sleeping With the Fishes” and the upcoming drama “Sticky Notes” with Ray Liotta.

Rodriguez is represented by APA and David Guillod at Intellectual Artists Management. Lewin and Jarrow are repped by CAA. Lewin’s lawyer is Craig Emanuel at Loeb & Loeb and Jarrow’s lawyers are Don Walerstein and Matt Walerstein at Rohner & Walerstein.
