Many of you have probably heard the legend of La Llorona or The Weeping Woman.  The upcoming ghost story Weep brings the tale of the Latino folklore to the big screen from BoulderLight Pictures.  Hollywood is beginning to take notice that Latino audiences are a huge percentage of the movie-going population and are tapping into that demographic.  Recent films such as Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones are catering to the Latino crowd.  Read on for more information below.

Deadline is reporting, Plot details are being kept under wraps, but BoulderLight says Weep will be a modern take on the classic ghost tale of the “La Llorona” (The Weeping Woman) legend. Blood List scribes T.J. Cimfel and David White are penning the screenplay with production set to begin this Spring.

“We’re incredibly excited to be bringing this terrifying and rich legend to North American audiences, said Producer J.D. Lifshitz. “David and TJ have helped cook up something truly scary and original, and we hope to thrill fans of the legend as well as garner new ones.”

“It’s no big secret that the Hispanic community makes up a substantial portion of moviegoers,” said producer Raphael Margules. “We couldn’t be more enthusiastic about bringing one of the most well-known characters in Hispanic Folklore to life on the big screen in a way that both honors ‘La Llorona’ and frightens audiences to their core.
