Actor/director Damian Chapa (”Under Siege”, ”Street Fighter”) will star as the legendary Marlon Brando in a new unauthorized feature film based on the life of the “Godfather” star.
Chapa also directs.
“Brando Unauthorized” will touch “lightly” on Brando’s career, largely concentrating on the actor’s upbringing and his relationship with troubled son, Christian.
Ricco Chapa will play Christian Brando. James Bardo will play the euro trash drug dealer that begins the demise of Brando’s son.
“It’s an intense story. We’re going to carefully base the film on public domain records,” Chapa, who now heads up the prod co Amadeus Pictures, said.
Filming begins July 5.
