Estefan Detailed Biography, April 2006:

from Guy Consterdine
As we expected, the title of the movie is to be Who's Sorry Now. It was almost inevitable. This item says filming will start this year, unlike a note a week or two ago which said not till 2007. At least it implies that Gloria believes she's got someone prepared to back the film financially and someone who's ready to direct and produce it.
