According to Deadline, Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has acquired all worldwide rights (excluding the Philippines – which will be released in theaters by ABS-CBN) to Diane Paragas’ film, Yellow Rose.
Directed by Paragas, Yellow Rose follows the story of Rose, a Filipina teen from a small town in Texas struggling to pursue her dreams of being a country singer while also facing the threat of deportation. Broadway star and multiple Tony Award nominee Eva Noblezada plays the role of Rose. Joining Noblezada is Tony Award winning actress Lea Salonga, Gustavo Gomez, Dale Watson and Princess Punzalan.
Below is part one of my interview with filmmaker Diane Paragas, Producer Cecilia Mejia and actress Princess Punzalan from earlier this year when the film made it’s premiere at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival.
