“I am honoured to be part of telling such an important story that is a piece of history that was largely unknown. Killing Castro perfectly encapsulates the type of stories we strive to tell at Romulus Entertainment, stories that do more than entertain audiences but create thought-provoking diverse content that brings to light the complexities of real life. We are looking forward to working with the incredible cast led by the inimitable Eif Rivera,” Feinstein said in a statement on Monday.
