With Jane the Virgin coming to an end after its fifth season, Gina Rodriguez is already starting to take steps forward in her film career. She’ll be playing the lead character in Miss Bala, a thriller about a beauty pageant winner who is taken into the criminal underworld after she witnesses a mob murder. It’s a remake of a 2011 Mexican movie, and Rodriguez says the American version will retain a very strong Hispanic flavor. (Click on the media bar below to hear Gina Rodriguez)
