Camila Mendes to star and executive produce Musica – Film News |


Camila Mendes will executive produce and star “Musica.”

The 27-year-old actress signed the feature opposite Rudy Mancuso in the Amazon Studios romantic comedy.

The Prime Video film will go into production this summer with Rudy directing and writing the screenplay with Dan Laguna. He is also set to compose the film’s score and soundtrack.

The film tells the story of a young man (Mancuso), plagued by the music in his head, who comes to terms with an uncertain future while balancing love, family, and Brazilian culture in New Jersey.

McG and Mary Viola will produce the film through their Wonderland Sound and Vision banner.

Mancuso said, “I am beyond thrilled to have this extremely gifted spirit of Camila join this special journey of ‘Musica,’ where we tell an authentic Brazilian-American story through the eyes of a synesthete.”

Viola added: “We are thrilled to team up with Cami, both in front of and behind the camera.

“Not only is she one of the most talented actresses of her generation, but she also brings authenticity to the project with her cultural knowledge of Brazil.”

Camila is also set to appear as the girlfriend of Pete Davidson’s character in the upcoming “American Sole” movie.

The film follows a pair of 20-somethings – played by Pete and O’Shea Jackson Jr. – who wipe out their college debt using quick cash from the aftermarket sneaker trade. However, their American dream soon becomes a nightmare after their startup runs out of money and a sleazy investor becomes their only way out.
