Filming commences this week for an American movie that is being called the ‘Jungle Move” by director/filmmaker Christopher Coppola in which a Belizean actor has been cast in a supporting actor role.
Local San Pedro, Ambergris Caye resident Horacio Luis Guerrero and star in the La Isla Bonita Telenovela, will be acting alongside Hollywood celebrities Debra Unger, John Savage and Vincent Spano in the film directed by Christopher Coppola, brother to A-list actor Nicolas Cage. Coppola is nephew of Francis Ford Coppola and actress Talia Shire and cousin of director Sofia Coppola. He began his filmmaking at an early age by creating super 8 films that starred his brother, Nicolas Cage.
On his Facebook profile page, Coppola gives a brief synopsis of his upcoming movie that will be filmed in the jungles of Belize: “My jungle movie is a psychological-supernatural thriller that takes place in Belize and San Francisco. Clara, sent away as a child by her grieving grandfather after the violent deaths of her parents, falls in love with the older but fascinating Gabriel Coronado and returns to the jungle that she loved but also now fears to confront her difficult past. Her world begins to shift. Nothing and nobody are what they seem. Clara overcomes new and old demons and, in the end, takes back control of her life.”
