Beatriz is well known for playing Rosa Diaz in Brooklyn Nine-Nine (which ran from 2013-2021).

Thompson). Wesley is well known for playing Stefan Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries (which ran from 2009-2017 on The CW). His other previous work includes 2016’s Mothers and Daughters (directed by Paul Duddrige and Nigel Levy), The Late Bloomer (directed by Kevin Pollak), and 2014’s Before I Disappear (directed by Shawn Christensen). Beatriz and Wesley will also be executive producers for the film.

The film will be directed by Bo Mirhosseni, who also wrote the screenplay. Jake Siegel will be a producer for the film. History of Evil will be produced by XYZ Films and Two & Two Pictures. The two production companies previously worked on 2016’s Under the Shadow (directed by Babak Anvari) and the upcoming Netflix film I Came By (also directed by Anvari). The movie is also part of an agreement between the two companies to make films by directors in under-represented groups in the film industry.
