Benjamin Bratt to Play Carlos Santana in New Biopic
HollywoodNews.com: I don’t know whose idea it was to put this movie together, but frankly, it sounds like movie magic in the making.
Legendary guitarist Carlos Santana is currently collaborating with actor Benjamin Bratt, and brother Peter Bratt, to put together a biopic, with Ben in the title role, sources revealed earlier this week.
Set to begin filming sometime in 2011, the currently unnamed project is still being written.
“They’ve already told the story of Selena, of Ritchie Valens, and before that there was Tito Guízar, but still no Santana,” Carlos said. “We’re going to start having interviews in order to present my story clearly, so that people know where I come from, who I am…so that people know that my mother is conviction and my father is charisma.”
I’ll be keeping my ears peeled for more info on this movie! It sounds like awesome in the making.
