Some of you will be familiar with the title La Gata, since it was an original Venezuelan telenovela which aired back in 1968. Well there are now plans to remake La Gata, with actress Maite Perroni in the lead role, with filming for the remake already well underway. It is believed that filming for La Gata began last week, with scenes being shot in Bordo de Xochiaca, in Chalco.
For those of you who are not all that familiar with La Gata, it centres around a very humble and very beautiful young woman, who is given the nickname La Gatita Esmerelda. This lovely young woman meets a very handsome man and it does not take long for the man to fall in love with her.
Maite Perroni plays the lead role of La Gatita Esmerelda and she has admitted that she is very excited by the project. Maite explained, "This is a story of work, of self-improvement. If you are going to tell a story you have to know what your character is feeling and it is also the reality of our country."
While Maite Perroni will play the female lead in La Gata, she is joined by her leading man Daniel Arenas, while the two stars will be joined by a supporting cast of Laura Zapata, Manuel Ojeda, Leticia Perdigón and Erika Buenfil. La Gata will start being broadcast in May and there are high hopes that it will be on of the biggest shows on Mexican television this Summer.
Are you happy that there is a remake of La Gata on its way or do you feel it should be left alone?
