Alonso tops Venezuela pic

'Punto's' Schneider will helm prod'n

HOLLYWOOD — Singer-actress Maria Conchita Alonso will star in and co-produce the $1.7 million Venezuelan romantic comedy “Unauthorized Clifford.”

Pic will be directed by Elia Schneider, helmer of Venezuelan’s foreign Oscar entry “Punto y raya” (Step Forward).

Schneider and producer-director husband Jose Novoa are in talks with potential co-producers in Spain, Colombia and the U.S. and have yet to decide if the pic will be shot in English or Spanish.

Written by Schneider and Fernando Butazzoni, “Unauthorized” centers on a playwright whose characters come to life to prevent him from scrapping them from his play.

Alonso has just produced and starred in a black-and-white silent film, “Babylon Revised,” which is now in post.
