Debra Martin Chase, producer of The Devil Wears Prada and former president of entertainment at the Telemundo network, is bringing the Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez novel The Dirty Girls Social Club to the big screen. Cinematical has more details on the story:
[It's] about a group of Latina women in their late twenties who became friends at Boston University and continue their friendship by coming together every few months. Parts of the novel are narrated by each woman — Lauren writes a column for the Boston Globe and has a thing for loser men, Usnavys is looking for a man who makes as much as she does and has expensive taste, Rebecca is a magazine publisher struggling to be a good wife as well, Elizabeth is a television anchor with a secret, Sara is a Martha Stewart-like homemaker, and Amber is in LA, trying to be a musician.
This is a refreshing change of pace from the all-white (or, all-white with Jennifer Hudson tossed in for good measure) "Sex and the City"-type stories, and I am very excited to see more opportunities for Hispanic actresses. Which brings me to The Question: Who should play the girls of The Dirty Girls Social Club?
