MIAMI – APRIL 12, 2022TelevisaUnivision Inc., the world’s leading Spanish-language content and media company, today announced that production began in Mexico City on “Quiero Tu Vida” (I Want Your Life), an exclusive romantic fantasy feature for ViX+, the new premium Spanish-language SVOD tier that the streaming platform will launch in the second half of 2022. This is the first project under TelevisaUnivision’s recently announced first-look deal with Salma Hayek Pinault’s Ventanarosa Productions to produce Spanish-language feature films exclusively for ViX+.   “Quiero Tu Vida”is a romantic fantasy feature about Nico, a young soccer player whose promising career comes to a sudden end when he suffers a devastating injury on the field. Eight years later, Nico turns into a bitter man who keeps fantasizing about what his life could have been. When the universe magically gives him an opportunity to live the life he always dreamed of, Nico learns that fame and glory can be deceitful and sometimes happiness comes in the most unexpected ways.   Produced by Salma Hayek Pinault and José Tamez under their Ventanarosa banner along with Jorge Garcia Castro, “Quiero Tu Vida” is directed by Jorge Colón (Sin Ella and Tired of Kissing Frogs) based on a script by Tamez and Garcia Castro. The ViX+ Original Film will star Erick Elías (Tormenta en el Paraíso and El Hotel de los Secretos), Zuria Vega (Que te Perdone Dios and Mi Marido Tiene Familia), Bárbara de Regil (El Torito and Rosario Tijeras), Jesús Zavala (La Boda de Valentina and Cómplices) and Natalia Téllez (Logout and Te Acuerdas de Mí).   Soccer – or rather fútbol – is a strong component of Latin American cultures, and a passion point for the all-star cast participating in front of and behind the cameras, in the production:
“The role of a soccer player is an exciting challenge for me as it makes me step out of my comfort zone. For almost two months, I’ve been training and rehearsing with director Jorge Colón, whom I wanted to work with again, said Erick Elías, star of “Quiero Tu Vida.” “I love the story because it pushes me to transform my look several times, in addition to being a physical challenge. I’m also thrilled to work in Mexico again.” “I love soccer, and I’m excited to be part of a movie that takes place in that world. I am very excited to work again with my good friend Erick Elias and also with Jorge Colón as I made my first film with him. This story will resonate with audiences because, given the immediacy of social media, we always aspire to a different life. The grass is always greener, but this film reminds us to be grateful and value what we have,” added Zuria Vega, star of “Quiero Tu Vida.” “I love the ‘Quiero Tu Vida’ story and am obsessed with my character, Sofi del Mar. Sofi is a very self-centered woman; it’s all about her. I’m making sure that, despite her narcissism, it comes across very naturally,” said Bárbara de Regil, star of “Quiero Tu Vida.”
