‘UGLY Betty’ could soon be turned into a Hollywood movie.
The comedy-drama show, which ran from 2006 to 2010, has developed a cult following and the cast of the show are apparently badgering its writer, Silvio Horta, to pen a film script.
Ana Ortiz, who played Betty’s sister Hilda Suarez, told The Sun newspaper: “I would love to say that there is a movie in the works.
“I just saw Vanessa (who played Wilhelmina) and we were determined, fingers crossed. I think Hilda would be still married and maybe they own their own salon, maybe Betty is running her own magazine.”
The 43-year-old also said she would love to see award-winning singer-songwriter Bette Midler, 68, make a cameo appearance in the film. She explained: “It is a New York show so there would have to be New York celebrities. We always wanted to get Bette Midler.” – BANG!
