Disney is arranged to take us on yet another fun excursion with a new adaptation of Judith Viorst’s classic children’s book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. The movie will star Eva Longoria and George Lopez, in accordance with The Hollywood Reporter.
The concluding variation will be Latino-focused and will follow a ”Mexican-American who have newly lost their connection to each other and their roots, as they embark on an epic road trip that immediately goes hilariously wrong.
Longoria will portray the family’s matriarch and mother to the titular Alexander character. She is described as a “travel writer who has lost passion for her work.” Lopez, on the other hand, will portray the family’s progenitor — a fun grandpa who is a tough biker.
This will be the second feature film adaptation of the book from Disney, the first one starring Steve Carell, Jennifer Garner, and Ed Oxenbould was released in 2014 and focused on the titular character who has an all-around bad day and eventually wishes the same on his entire family when they all trivialize his problems and refuse to sympathize with him.
It was begotten by Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, and Lisa Henson all of whom are back again to helm the new variation as makers.
Matt Lopez known as Father of the Bride and Clifford the Big Red Dog wrote the screenplay. Dan Cohen who has helmed a handful of Netflix projects is also part of the team of makers.
He was newly divulged as the director for the hotly anticipated Deadpool 3 with Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman set to star. Emily Morris and Blanca Lista will executive produce. Making for the film which is being intended for Disney+ is scheduled to begin in the spring in New Mexico.
