If Jenni Rivera‘s family gets its way, the late singer’s daughter Janney “Chiquis” Marin would play her mother in a film about her life. The plans for such a biopic are underway, and it’s just a matter of the movie’s producers accepting Chiquis as an option.
“That’s our plan, that’s our dream. But, you know, in situations like a movie as big as this and with producers and big companies, these decisions have to be made as a team,” Jenni’s sister Rosie Rivera tells Primer Impacto (via Huffington Post). “We as the Rivera family will present Chiquis and hope they accept her.”
Though this would be Chiquis’ first film role, it wouldn’t be her first time in the spotlight. She appeared on the reality show “Jenni Rivera Presents: Chiquis and Raq-C” in 2010, as well as other subsequent reality series’ about the Rivera family. Francisco Joel Mendoza, the Jenni River biopic director, previously suggested actress like Jennifer Lopez and Angelica Vale for the role.
Rivera died in a plane crash on Dec. 9, 2012.
