Tom Cruise film about Pablo Escobar changes name
Production will now be called ‘American Made’ and also delayed its release date.
‘American Made’ (Made in America), that is the new title of the film that will star Tom Cruise on the Medellin Cartel, and was formerly called Mena.
The film is inspired by the life of former pilot Barry Seal, a drug dealer who was recruited by the DEA to provide information on the drug lord Pablo Escobar.
In addition, sl Web site of the journal Variety reported that the film will change its release date, which will no longer be the January 6, 2017, but the 29 day of September of that year.
Cruise filmed some of the scenes from the movie in Medellin last year, where he met with the mayor of that time, Anibal Gaviria; with members of the Film Commission of Medellin and Andres Calderon, Dynamo, producer of the film Mena.
Filming took a difficult chapter after a crash of a small plane production last September 11 in the town of San Pedro de los Milagros (Antioquia). In the collision, two members of the film production died.
In addition, the pilot was injured Jimmy Lee Garland, who has also worked as twice Cruise.
