Fresh off her Golden Globe win for “Jane the Virgin,” Gina Rodriguez has landed the female lead opposite Mark Wahlberg in Peter Berg’s “Deepwater Horizon,” multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.

Lionsgate and Participant Media are teaming with Lorenzo di Bonaventura on “Deepwater Horizon,” which chronicles the 2010 BP oil spill.

A representative for Lionsgate declined to comment on the casting.

Wahlberg is set to play Mike Williams, an electrician aboard the doomed oil rig, while Rodriguez is in early talks to play Andrea Fleytas.

Fleytas was helping to operate the oil rig’s sophisticated navigation machinery when she noticed a glaring oversight — that no one had issued a distress signal to the outside world. She grabbed the radio and attempted to contact the Coast Guard, for which she was reprimanded.

Kristen Stewart, who was just cast in Woody Allen‘s new movie, was also eyed for the role, according to insiders.

Berg’s “The Kingdom” collaborator Matthew Michael Carnahan wrote the script, and the film is scheduled for release on Sept. 30, 2016.

Rodriguez is a NYU graduate who got her start on “The Bold and the Beautiful” before landing the lead in the acclaimed Sundance drama “Filly Brown.” She currently stars on the CW’s hit dramedy “Jane the Virgin,” for which she won the Golden Globe for best actress in a comedy or musical.

“Deepwater Horizon” will serve as Rodriguez’s studio movie debut, though her indie credits include “Sleeping With the Fishes” and the upcoming drama “Sticky Notes” with Ray Liotta.

Rodriguez is represented by APA, Primary Wave Entertainment and Jackoway Tyerman.

After new rules issued last month announced that a comedy would be defined as a series with episodes of 30 minutes or less and drama would be episodes an hour long, the TV Academy has released the first decisions by a panel established to evaluate category eligibility.

The nine-member panel, which includes five industry leaders appointed by the academy chairman and four appointees by the board of governors, ruled that Showtime’s “Shameless,” CW’s “Jane the Virgin” and Fox’s “Glee” can be considered comedies, despite their length. A two-thirds vote of the panel was required to reach each decision.

Each of the series will compete in the comedy category for all other awards, including performer, writer, director, etc.

“This show was always conceived as a comedy; pitched to the network and studio as a comedy; and marketed to viewers as a comedy,” said “Jane the Virgin” showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman. “We are thrilled with the television academy’s decision.”

“Shameless” has competed in both drama and comedy, but made the switch to comedy last year. Series star William H. Macy got his first nomination last year in the comedy category.

The TV Academy did not comment on any other potential petitioners, such as Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black,” which competed last year as a comedy.

Nominations for the 2015 Emmy Awards will be announced on July 16. The Emmys, which will be hosted by Andy Samberg, will air Sept. 20 on Fox.

When the “Jane the Virgin” cast took to the PaleyFest stage at the Dolby Theater on Sunday, the result was every bit as humorous, engaging and inspiring as quirky The CW show itself, touching on everything from star Justin Baldoni’s enviable abs to the ongoing struggle for immigration reform, prompting the cast to joke that they’d soon embark on a motivational speaking tour.

Golden Globe-winning star Gina Rodriguez kicked things off by eloquently discussing what the role of Jane meant to her, admitting, “Jane is a woman I wish I was more like… You seldom get the opportunity to even audition for a woman who is so strong and empowering and fearless and driven and a virgin.” Rodriguez pointed out that her parents are from Puerto Rico and speak Spanish and English, so she relates to relate to Jane’s dual identity and was eager for the chance to “talk about a culture that doesn’t get recognized as the hero.”
