Zulay Henao to Star in Vanessa del Rio Biopic

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Single Moms Club star Zulay Henao is set to star as Vanessa del Rio in an upcoming, indie biopic about the famous porn star.

This film, as of yet untitled, will also mark the directorial debut of music video director Thomas Mignone. Additionally, Mignone has written the script.

Producing this drama will be Datari Turner and Arthur Sarkissian, who are best known for the Rush Hour series. The movie will begin filming in October in Los Angeles and New York.

Set in the sketchy streets of 1970s New York, the upcoming film chronicles Harlem-raised Ana Maria Sanchez, of Cuban and Puerto Rican parents, through her transitions from waitress, to prostitute, and eventually to adult film star. Starting in her early 20s, she adopted the name Vanessa del Rio and became the first porn star of Latin decent, also earning the nickname 'Latin from Manhattan.'

Born in Columbia, Henao has had many varied screen appearances from the television drama Army Wives to the thriller, Takers. She is currently filming Tyler Perry's TV series If Loving You is Wrong, based on his film, Single Moms Club.
