Multiple Isabela Merced movies are currently being produced. In this info article, Q.V. Hough lists upcoming roles for the Sweet Girl actress. Visit the Movie and TV News section for more entertainment industry coverage.
In Sweet Girl, Isabela Merced portrays a traumatized teenager who helps her father seek revenge on a Big Pharma company. Jason Momoa headlines Brian Andrew Mendoza’s Netflix film as a grieving widower, but the narrative conflict shifts to his female co-star in the final act. Merced earned a strong worldwide following before 2021 — thanks in part to a lead performance in Dora and the Lost City of Gold — and she’ll undoubtedly become an ever bigger name because of Sweet Girl’s wild climax. See below for details about the actress’ upcoming movie roles.
Isabela Merced Movies: Father of the Bride
Per The Hollywood Reporter’s April 2021 exclusive, Merced will co-star in the latest Father of the Bride adaptation.

Father of the Bride stars Adria Arjona, who plays Merced’s mother in Sweet Girl. Andy Garcia and Gloria Estefan round out the main cast as the focal parents. Gaz Alazraki (Club de Cuervos) directed Father of the Bride, which features a screenplay adaptation by Matt Lopez (Race to Witch Mountain). A release date hasn’t been set.
Isabela Merced Movies: Rosaline
In June 2021, Deadline reported that Merced has been cast in the upcoming dramedy Rosaline. Based on Rebecca Serle’s 2010 novel When You Were Mine, the adaptation tells a modern tale about William Shakespeare’s characters Romeo and Juliet. 20th Century Studios hired Yes, God, Yes filmmaker Karen Maine to direct Rosaline, which was written by the Oscar-nominated Scott Neustadter (The Disaster Artist). Kaitlyn Dever (Booksmart) stars as the title character, who observes the romantic relationship of her cousin Juliet (Merced). Rosaline is currently in the pre-production phase.
