“We’re so excited to return to Mexico to shoot this story that celebrates young love and to do so with such an amazing international cast and crew and the support of our incredible producing partners in Mexico and New York,” producer Tom Gustafson said in a press release. “And to be on this journey with the support of two of our heroes, Indigo Girls’ Amy and Emily, is humbling and inspiring.”
Cory Krueckeberg, the co-executive producer, said the story was inspired by him meeting Gustafson in Chicago: “My first thought was to ask Amy and Emily since their music was such a big part of our relationship,” he said. “So we sent my first draft with fingers crossed, and they said yes. And then started the real work of combing through their deep, rich catalog for the 20 best songs to weave throughout the fabric of our story.”
It’s not known which of the duo’s lyrically potent and melodically catchy songs will make the film but some of their most popular tunes are “Closer to Fine,” “Galileo,” “Get Out the Map,” “Shame on You” and “Power of Two.” The Indigo Girls have released 16 studio albums over the past 35 years and sold more than 15 million albums.
