Gina Rodriguez Is Set To Revive The Dying Rom-Com Drama With Her New Netflix Movie And We Are Totally Here For It

Gina’s newest project is a sign that the Latina star of “Jane The Virgin” has no intention of taking a break from her booming career. In addition to her hit show, this year the actress has been juggling big projects like “Annihilation,” “Smallfoot,” and “Carmen Sandiego.” Now, she’s adding a new romantic comedy to her plate.

In her newest project, the actress takes on a story that is all about the power of female friendship.

Rodriguez latest movie comes in the form of a romantic comedy set to be released by Netflix.

Press around the film, has us pretty sure that the project will operate more as a love letter to female friendships than it will to romantic relationships. In a recent report by The Hollywood Reporter, the site states that the upcoming movie will center around a woman who, after facing a “heart-wrenching break-up,” takes on new adventures in New York City with her two best friends at her side.

By the looks of it, the movie’s main story will bring viewers all of the Latina Power.

Rodriguez’s new movie will be directed by MTV’s “Sweet/Vicious” creator, Jennifer Kaytin Robinson. The newbie director helming the film recently posted a tweet about the movie that hints that it will likely be more about the lead character’s friendships and personal growth than it will on her romantic interests. If the director’s tweet is any indication, Rodriguez’s character will likely be the knight who answers her own call of distress in the movie.

It’s a shakeup to the romantic-comedy genre that Twitter is totally here for.

When it comes to the box office, there’s no doubting the fact that in recent years the rom-com genre has faltered to receive much love. As of late, it seems that the days of Hollywood cranking out rom-coms passed out of sight once the careers of Katherine Heigl and Kate Hudson began to slow down. Of course, while films like “27 Dresses” and “How To Lose A Guy In 10” will likely remain fan favorites for years to come, it’s exciting to see movies like “Bridesmaids” and “Girls Trip” where female empowerment is central begin to take over the scene. Buzz around the movie’s release on Twitter has primarily focused on the bringing together of two rising forces in Hollywood: Rodriguez and Robinson. Chatter around the movie’s strong female empowerment themes has also fans of both creators pumped. Mostly because of what it’s female-led storyline could mean for the once loved genre.

This Quietly Posted IMDB Page Could Mean ‘Coco 2’

To say our worlds were rocked when Pixar finally gave us a touching film about la cultura a few years ago would be the biggest understatement of the century. ‘Coco,’ the 2017 American 3D computer-animated fantasy starring Gael García Bernal and Benjamin Bratt filled our hearts and also brought us to tears. Still, as satisfying as the film was, there’s no doubt it left us craving more. And it looks like we might just get it.

An IMDB page for Coco 2 has been created and I’m sorry but I can’t stop freaking out!!

According to IMDB user anthandsoc-95189 who appears to have long had the inside scoop on upcoming films, ‘Coco 2: Return To the Land Of the Living’ is in the works! Some digging around has also revealed that another sight might have information on the plot and characters of the sequel film. Of course, this information has yet to be confirmed and might be purely a wish, but if it is we’ll dream big!

According to IMDB ‘Coco 2’ will take place 6 years after the first film

‘Coco’ / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

The IMDB page says “It’s been 6 years since the events happened for Miguel. But when Hector, Imelda, and his great grand-abuelos need Miguel’s help to come back to the Land of the Living because some mysterious sinister masked skeleton is haunting and rules their world with an iron fist and sword and hates music.”

Which means, if IMDB is correct, we haven’t seen the last of Mama Coco!

Sweet Coco could have a really big role in the new film!!

Of course, other sites have other insights into the could-be sequel…

Because of course everyone has an opinion!

According to Fandom.com ‘Coco 2’ will take place six years after the first film.

We’ll see Miguel’s family attempt to throw him a fiesta, but sadly Miguel, still upset about Mama Coco’s death, will be upset.

When Miguel meets a sophisticated, ghostly and well-bred skeletal spirit Miguel will attempt to return to The Land Of The Dead for a vacation.

Now that’s an insane idea for a spring break.

In this version of the sequel, Miguel will a dark black hole to go back to The Land Of The Dead, to see Papa Hector and Mamma Imelda.

Of course, Miguel will be astonished when he sees his old family members for another time and finally gets to see Mama Coco.

Soon enough, Miguel is racing against time, once again, to avoid being a skeleton.

But this time, Marcel might not be so bothered by the idea of living amongst the dead for forever.

Of course, all of this is speculative. Who knows if Pixar has plans for a sequel in the works, but as one fan points out this clip by Pixar on the DVD release has some great hints!

“I had to go ‘oh yeah, you wanna fuck me? Yeah yeah yeah let’s go to this hotel.’ And then I’d drug [expletivie] up and I’d rob them. That’s what I used to do.”

Users online were quick to comment.

“The fact that cardi b admitted to drugging and robbing men she would take back to a hotel for sex blows my mind,” wrote Twitter user @itsangelaa. “That’s not ‘keeping it real.’ that’s a crime.”

“I wonder what woulda happened if it were the other way round,” @BTSisthecauseo5 commented.
