‘Rebelion de los Godinez’, translated as ‘Mutiny of the Worker Bees’, is a quirky and hilarious take on the life of a young professional and how he deals with his new workplace. Like many comedies, this upcoming Spanish movie is a slice of life story about Omar Buendia. Omar is a simple but a very smart guy with dreams of making it big in life. And then he lands a job at a tech company and meets some of the strangest people in his life! 

The movie is all set to release on May 20, 2020. But before you catch the wild ride of Omar and his colleagues, let's find out more. 

Featuring in the leading role of Omar Buendia is actor Gustavo Egelhaaf. He is the leading character of the story around whom the entire movie revolves. Egelhaaf is a Mexican actor from Sonora, Mexico. He is a locally famous actor whose acting career has spanned the stage, television, and mainstream cinema.

Egelhaaf, has appeared in a slew of movies and television series. His acting career started in 2008, but he gained recognition from his work in ‘4 Moons/Cuatro Lunas’ in 2014. Later, he starred in other Spanish movies like 'Doblemente Embarazada', 'Hasta Que La Boda Nos Separe', and 'Perfect Obedience'. But his television presence took off and boosted his fame.

Gustavo Egelhaaf hosted the television show 'A la Cachi Cachi Porra' and is best known for his roles in 'El Vato' on NBC (now on Netflix), 'El Chema' on Telemundo, 'El secreto de Selena' on TNT/Telemundo and was part of 'El Chapó' and 'Maldita Tentación' - both series with FOX Mundo.

His most notable theater performances include Haudecoeur's 'Mad about Tea', a play that earned him a nomination for Best Comedy Actor by the Association of Theatre Journalists; as well as Craig Wagner's 'Strangers on a Train' with Alejandro Camacho and Eric Coble's 'Bright Ideas'. While most of his earlier roles (at least in movies) have been on a more serious side, it will be interesting to see the actor in a lighter, quirkier portrayal of the classic 9-5 employee.
