Al Pacino, Diego Boneta, Xolo Mariduena, KiKi Layne, Alexander Ludwig, Ron Livingston, Kendrick Sampson, Nicole Beharie, Logan Marshall-Green and Titus Welliver are all set to star in “Killing Castro” for Romulus Entertainment.

Set in 1960 and based on true events, the film begins when Fidel Castro travels to New York City to deliver his first speech to the United Nations after having won the Cuban revolution.

When met with hostility at his original hotel, Castro meets Malcolm X, who invites him to stay at the famed Hotel Theresa in Harlem.

With the eyes of the world watching, a rookie undercover FBI agent originally assigned to investigate Malcolm X suddenly becomes the FBI’s most valuable asset – tasked with keeping Castro from being eliminated by the CIA and the Italian mafia, by any means necessary.

Eif Rivera (“BMF,” “Power Book III: Raising Kanan”) will make their directorial debut on the movie from a script by Leon Hendrix, Thomas DeGrezia and Colin Bateman. This will be Rivera’s first feature film.

Brad Feinstein and Christina Weiss Lurie will produce and shooting will take place in Newark, New Jersey.
