It's no secret that Chiquis Rivera bears a startling resemblance to her late mother, Jenni. So much so, in fact, that Chiquis is now slated to star as La Diva de la Banda in an upcoming film! 

According to the Huffington Post, Rivera confirmed to Univision that she will be portraying her mother in an upcoming film. Jenni Rivera, who was killed in a plane crash in December 2012, had five children, all of whom approve of the upcoming flick. 

Italia Cantoral, who was set to play Rivera in a different film, recently made headlines after being publicly fired to bad behavior and excessive drinking.

Do you think Chiquis is the perfect person for the role?
