Miravista will learn ‘What God Knows’

Luna, Braga sign up for Bolado pic

HOLLYWOOD — Miravista, Disney’s Latin American production label, has boarded the next Diego Luna pic, “Solo Dios sabe” (What God Knows), a $3 million Mexican-Brazilian co-production from U.S.-based Mexican helmer Carlos Bolado.

Luna (“Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights,” “Y tu mama tambien”) will play opposite Brazil’s Alicia Braga (“City of God”) in the romantic drama. Screenplay was co-written by San Francisco-based Bolado and Diane Weipert.

Brazil’s Dezenove and Bolado’s production house Sincronia will co-produce. Other U.S. indie producers may board the pic, according to Bolado. Principal photography is slated to begin in July. “We already shot the ending in Brazil with (Luna) as it takes place during the new year festivities of Salvador de Bahia,” he said.

Miravista produced recent Mexican hit “Ladies Night” and has a string of Brazilian projects. In Argentina, Disney produces local pics via Patagonik, a powerhouse label it co-owns with Argentinian conglom Grupo Clarin and Spanish telco Telefonica.

New York-based Film Movement will release Miravista’s first Brazilian pic, Vicente Amorim’s “Middle of the World,” in the U.S.

Other Miravista Brazilian pics in production include Cao Hamburger’s “My Life as a Goalkeeper,” Paulo Morelli’s “Viva voz,” Jose Emilio Rondeau’s “1972,” Roberto Gervitz’s “Jogos subterraneo,” Bruno Barreto’s “Romeo and Julieta Get Married” and Daniel Filho’s “A Dona da historia.”

Luna will next appear in Gregory Jacob’s “Criminal” and Steven Spielberg’s “The Terminal.”
