After years of absence from the small screen, Bárbara Mori might return as a villain in the remake of the 1995 classic "María la del barrio". It was informed that Mori is being considered by Televisa as the villain Soraya Montenegro, originally played by Itatí Cantoral.
If the casting offer comes through, it will be Mori’s first mainstream telenovela after her iconic Rubí in 2004. Mori is currently filming her TV series “Dos Lunas”, where she plays a double role, and which she also co-produces.
Producer Nathalie Lartilleux is currently planning the project, which is expected to premiere next year. Maite Perroni, África Zavala and Ximena Navarrete have been mentioned as possible candidates for the role which was once played by Thalía.
