Gina Rodriguez May Be In Movie With Mark Wahlberg

Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez is in talks to star alongside mega-star Mark Wahlberg in a new action/drama called Deepwater Horizon.

The Jane the Virgin star posted this to her Instagram with a very enthusiastic caption. Take a look:

This is crazy huge news. Months ago, Gina was just a girl with an uncertain, budding TV career. Now, she is a superstar with a possible HUGE resume bump at her feet.

Deepwater Horizon is the story of the explosion on the BP rig in 2010 and is set to be real eased in September of 2016. Variety reported that the role Gina is up for is of Andrea Fleytas. She was the "23-year-old who was monitoring the oil rig's safety systems in the moments before the explosion. She testified later that she did not immediately sound an alarm because she had not been training to deal with multiple warnings."

We are so excited by this news and hope the nest big headline we read is "Gina Rodriguez and Mark Wahlberg star in big 2016 blockbuster!"
