Gina Rodriguez is set to star in Awake, a Netflix film that Mark Raso, one of Fidelio’s founders, will direct from a script he wrote with Joseph Raso and Greg Poirer. Raso previously directed Kodachrome, the Ed Harris-starrer that Netflix acquired after it premiered in Toronto in 2017. Entertainment One is producing.
Rodriguez, who followed Jane the Virgin with the Sony remake of Miss Bala, here plays an ex-soldier with a troubled past who holds the key to a cure after a sudden global event wipes out all electronics and takes away humankind’s ability to sleep. Chaos quickly begins to consume the world and Jill may hold the key in the form on her own daughter. The question is, can Jill safely deliver her daughter and save the world before she herself loses her mind?
