How The Garcia girls Spent Their Summer: According to The Hollywood Reporter, America Ferrera, the breakout star of HBO Films' Real Women Have Curves, is set to star in the indie How the Garcia Girls Spent Their Summer for first-time director Georgina Garcia Riedel.

The story, penned by Riedel, follows three generations of women in a Mexican-American family during one hot summer in the small border town of Somerton, Ariz. When Dona Genoveva (Lucy Gallardo), the Garcia family matriarch, purchases a car, she sets off a chain of events that leads to a sexual revolution within her family, from her middle-aged daughter to her teenage granddaughter (Ferrera).

Elizabeth Pena is in negotiations to star alongside Ferrera as the middle-aged daughter. Stay tuned for more on this project...
