The continuation of La Isla Bonita Telenovela is still in the works and rumors that production of the telenovela might be picked up seem to be true. Information coming in to Ambergris Today is that if all goes well, shooting should start this year. But the telenovela might need a new cast member to take on the leading roll of Carolina as news came in this week that Oscar Generale and Denny Mendez expect a baby.
Ambergris Today and the San Pedro community extend congratulations and send best wishes to the couple on the announcement of Denny’s pregnancy. There might now be new auditions held for the leading female roll of the telenovela as Denny Mendez will be pretty busy attending to her new born expected in the late summer. Ambergris Today will keep everybody posted on further developments on the telenovela and Denny’s pregnancy.
Generale & Ms. Mendez took time off from the Cannes Film Festival this year in anticipation of their new addition to the family. The Italian superstar couple was spotted shopping in Beverly Hills among the famous store fronts and top designer labels. Denny recently completed filming a promotional campaign for Festina watches with Gerard Butler; Oscar Generale was the force behind the deal.
The San Pedro community, where the pilot episode of the telenovela was filmed, was shocked at the beginning of the year by the news of the untimely death of the creator/director/cinematographer of the project, Matthiew Klinck. Work is being done to keep his dream and legacy alive, that of the telenovela and the development of the film industry in Belize.
