Producer eyes movie on Mexican singer Gloria Trevi

An independent film company is developing a movie about Gloria Trevi, the fallen pop singer dubbed “Mexico’s Madonna.”
Swiss-born Christian Keller will make his directorial debut on “Trevi,” which is to be produced by New York-based Braven Films. Company head Frida Torresblanco, who once ran Alfonso Cuaron’s production company, will produce with Oscar-winning “Lord of the Rings” producer Barrie Osborne.
Famed for her wild performances and edgy lyrics about unwed motherhood and drug abuse, Trevi spent almost five years in prison earlier this decade accused of helping to kidnap and rape teenage girls lured into her cult-like musical clan. A court found her innocent in 2004, but not before she got pregnant in a Brazilian prison in a bid to avoid extradition. After she was released, she launched a successful comeback.
“‘Trevi’ is the perfect inaugural project for us because Gloria Trevi embodies everything we want our films to be about — she was inspirational, creative, provocative and intriguing on so many levels,” Torresblanco said.
