Pic looks at musicians' craft, lives

Shooting is under way, with pic slated to be completed by fall. Producers are Fabienne Servan Schreiber of Cineteve, Fernando Trueba Prods. and Rosa Bosch of Tequila Gang.

“I have always loved Latin music and have been waiting for just the right project to come along,” said Miramax co-chairman Harvey Weinstein. “The chance to work with Fernando and so many talented musicians on this project is especially exciting.”

In the film, Trueba will offer a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the music and lives of some of the greatest Latin musicians of the era. The project aims to capture the beat of Latino musicians including Tito Puente, D’Rivera, Chucho and Bebe Valdes, Gato Barbieri, Israel “Cachoa” Lopez, Chico O’Farrill, Michael Camilo and Jerry Gonzalez & Fort Apache.
