As Naranjo's reputation in the U.S. has been forged solely by the brutal Miss Bala, I'd be curious to see what direction he would take this romantic journey. Screenwriter J. Mills Goodloe (Adaline, Pride) has already been brought on board to translate Martin's novel into a passion-fueled drama about survival and second chances. Together, the pair could craft something gritty and salacious. Should he sign on, the film would be Naranjo's first studio feature.
