Nilo Cruz, a Pulitzer Prize winner for his play "Anna in the Tropics," has signed on to co-write Castro's Daughter along with Crash's Bobby Moresco, who is also directing and producing the film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story centers on Fidel Castro's exiled daughter, Alina Fernandez, who fled Cuba in 1993.

Cruz, who was born in Cuba, left the country in 1970 for the Little Havana section of Miami.

The film is aiming to go into production next year.
