There’s a thin line between love and hate, and Prime Video’s upcoming Spanish romantic drama is proof of that! Nicole Wallace and Gabriel Guevara starrer Culpa Mia is based on the first book of Mercedes Ron’s Culpables trilogy. The author shot to fame after she published it on popular reader’s platform Wattpad. Culpa Mia follows the story of a teenage girl named Noah who has to leave her town, boyfriend and friends behind and move into the mansion of William Leister, her mother’s new rich husband. There she meets Nick, her new stepbrother, and the clash of their strong personalities becomes evident from the very beginning. Culpa Mia’s story had received tremendous response from readers on the platform, which led to it being picked up by the streaming giant.
Author Mercedes Ron recently opened up about her novel being adapted to the screen, “I had graduated in media studies so I always wanted my books to reach the theatres, or the screen in any way, so seeing Culpa Mia on Prime Video is incredible, it is a dream come true. I think all authors have dreams about seeing our novels made into films, and here I am living the dream! Visiting the sets was an incredible experience too, I learned about all the effort and work it takes behind filming.”
“The success of Culpa Mia (the novel) lies in the enemies to lovers component. Because we all want to watch two people who hate each other fall in love. The chemistry between Nick and Noah, or Gabriel and Nicole is very special and it runs through the scene, so the audience is going to enjoy it a lot. As an author, it scares you a lot when you see your book on the screen, but after I watched the finished film, I was relieved, it was incredible! I can’t wait for everyone to watch it.”
The Spanish original film Culpa Mía is produced by Pokeepsie Films , with Domingo González as director and screenwriter. The film will premiere on Prime Video from 8th June in 240+ countries and territories worldwide.
