Former NFL great, Nick Lowery, joins Marco SantiagoÂ?s high-energy action/comedy film from Volarefilms. The film is MarcoÂ?s surrealistic and twisted take on the Hollywood development process, which he lampoons in Â?DiablitaÂ?.

Directed and executive produced by award winning filmmaker Marco Santiago (El Trafico, Once Upon a Time in the Desert, Into the Border), and with an anticipated production start date of May 21, “Diablita” will be shot as a 35mm short film project.

“Nick Lowery brings a lively sense of humor to the project.” says Marco. “Although this is his first film role, I feel that Mr. Lowery will bring the right sensitivity and humor to this project.” Marco Continues. A 7-time All Pro place kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs from 1980 to the mid 1990’s, Nick Lowery was a Preliminary Nominee to the 2004 Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Nick Lowery currently hosts ESPN’s Headgames Radio (, and is the founder of Native Vision and Nation Building for Native Youth, two nationally recognized leadership programs. He was a guest star on HBO’s “First and Ten”. “I’m very excited to have Mr. Lowery on board this project.” Says Marco.

“Diablita”, Spanish for She Devil, is a satiric and surrealistic lampooning of the Hollywood development process. The story centers around a screenwriter that meets with two studio executives, who then proceed to turn the screenwriter’s story into a Hollywood style rolling gun battle between two hot and sexy females in order to conform to a commercial marketing strategy. “The story is filled with black humor and irony.” Says Marco. “The interesting thing about the story is that it lampoons itself. It is a Hollywood style production, complete with hyper-kinetic chase sequences, guns, hot women, and fast talking executives. It lampoons itself by being over the top and absurd. The operative word here is hyper-realistic.” Marco Continues.

Nick Lowery Joins Jeff Fahey (Siverado, Wyatt Earp, Lawnmower Man), Amy Weber (Jo Dirt, Son of Beach, Port Charles), Cathy Rankin (Salina Incident, iTV Sports, NFL Monday Night Football), Jennifer Pfalzgraff (21 Grams, Dragon Kin), Larry "Tank" Jones (Three Kings, Any Given Sunday), as well as John Dobradenka, Alex Rodriguez, Erin Del Roso, and John Manross. Casting was done by Faith Hibbs-Clark of Good Faith Casting,
