“I’ve been a fan of Guillermo since his first film and when he approached me about wanting to work on something together, I jumped at the chance and came up with the story for ‘You Can’t Stay Here,'” said director Todd Verow, who produces through his Bangor Films. “It’s a film about queer cruising and finding Love and real human connections in the most unlikely of places. While it’s set in the 1990s, The themes of the film are homophobia, social hysteria and being in a dangerous situation and intolerant world are as resonant today as ever.”
DIaz, who will star in the upcoming comedy from Universal Pictures.brothers” is also one of the producers of the film alongside Verow, James Kleinmann and Christian DiPillo. Verow and his longtime collaborator James Derek Dwyer wrote the screenplay.
