Eugenio Derbez will premiere a new film at the start of the year

Almost 10 years after the magazine Wired highlighted on its cover the story of a Mexican student whom they called the new Steve Jobs, the film will be released Radical where Eugenio Derbez will act as actor and producer.

It is the story of a girl who was the first national place in an exam that was taken in 2012 and came from a school where there were no resources, there was nothing, it was one of the worst qualified schools and, suddenly, she comes out being the best.
It turns out that this was due to the teacher’s method and several of his classmates also had very high grades”, recently pointed out Derbez, whose production house, 3Pas Studio, was in charge of the film considered motivational and which will be screened at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival.

“I hope it can help change education in this country. We filmed it in Mexico, and the truth is that it is beautiful”, added the 61-year-old actor.

For his part, Kim Yutani, the festival’s programming director, praised the great work done by Derbez.

“We wanted to start with a real bang. Radical is directed by Chris Zalla, who did Our father, which won the Grand Jury prize several years ago. This is a very moving film about educators helping children to find their potential and discover their own genius. We were very inspired by this film that takes place in Mexico and has an incredible performance by Eugenio Derbez,” he said.

Apart from his film performance, Derbez will also be in force in the comedy genre through the fifth season of LOL: Last One Laughing, the series that premiered through Prime Video.

“It started as an experiment. What I fall in love with the most LOL it is the fact of being able to discover new ways of making people laugh that are totally different from what we are used to. That of having a comedian locked up for six hours to see how far they are able to go in order to make the other laugh seemed like a wonderful formula, that is, if you think about it, put 10 comedians in a room and have them talk to each other. to make each other laugh, the one who wins is the public, I think it is a very nice project, very daring, yes, but I think that in the end many good things come out of it. LOL“Derbez explained in an interview with the Excelsior newspaper.
