EXCLUSIVE: Genesis Rodriguez is in negotiations to star opposite Paul Walker in Hours, the post-Hurricane Katrina indie thriller that Eric Heisserer (Final Destination 5) wrote and is directing — his feature helming debut. Peter Safran is producing. The film centers on a father (Walker) who fights to keep his newborn daughter alive in a New Orleans hospital after Katrina hits the city. Rodriguez, repped by ICM and De Paz Management, most recently appeared on Man On A Ledge opposite Sam Worthington and Elizabeth Banks, and next up is Will Ferrell’s Casa De Mi Padre and the ensemble What To Expect When You’re Expecting. The actress just wrapped Lionsgate’s The Last Stand.
