Argentine actress Mia Maestro (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) is set to star in Venezuelan director Eduardo Rodriguez’s abduction thriller The Darkness of the Road. The gorgeous 32-year-old will play a young single mom desperate to find her six-year-old daughter after losing her during a road trip.
The official synopsis reads:
A single mother named Siri (Maestro) and her daughter Eve pull over on a desolated road in a moonless desert. Everything seems to be going according to plan as they resume their trip toward a new home… But after meeting Iris, a young female hitchhiker, Siri realizes that her 6 year-old daughter has gone missing.
As the search for Eve develops, a merciless force begins to attack and torment the two women, unraveling a world of terror. Siri and Iris must survive this hellish nightmare if they are to discover the terrifying truth behind Eve’s disappearance…
Maestro has starred in such critically acclaimed fare as The Motorcycle Diaries and Frida, but is probably best known to us uncultured degenerates for starring in Wolfgang Petersen’s Poseidon and playing Sydney Bristow’s half-sister-turned-spy Nadia Santos on J.J. Abrams’ hit ABC show “Alias.”
She will next be seen as vegetarian vamp Carmen of the Denali Coven in the upcoming Twilight Saga chapters Breaking Dawn 1-&-2.
