William Levy will be starting a Hollywood movie soon!
An unlikely car thief, Jake Edwards, from Edison New Jersey and his story. Reflections of a failing economy 1 out of every 3 residents in NJ are with out health care insurance, Jake is one of them. A sky light entrance into a car dealership in Las Vegas is a "Fall down the rabbit hole" of his journey. In a blink of an eye little known to Jake his life is saved by the worst of two evils. Enter Janet a street wise prostitute with a handful of attitude, now attached to this ever faster growing tornado. In the mist of confusion and mistrust a love story evolves.
A lot of the cast is still in the pending or rumored stage (Stacy keach, scott Baio, Andrew Dice Clay, etc.) but it looks like our boy is the definite.
Anon it's a american movie and he will be speaking english. Also you're in the minority although i am happy for William at getting this chance so many of us Levy fans do not want to lose him to the movies.
I prefer like so many others to see him on tv five times a week. Time will tell if this movie project will be a success or not.
We don't know if this a theater movie or made for tv movie yet.
Sorry while i hope his movie does well an i am american, i hope he doesn't stop doing novelas.
My concern is that Scott Baio and others mentioned (Billy Mumy - from Lost in Space) are not exactly A listers. Also, frankly, William is most likely virtually unknown to non-telenova viewers. The plot sounds intriguing so I hope it works out well for him (and for the others).
Since he first starring role in CCEA that novela along now with Sorti has gain William a world wide fan base.
I like to think because of this his popularity has grown and these novelas have been shown in several countries.
If what William wants is to do more roles and have a bigger control over his career then movies are good too.
If he wants to become VERY famous and VERY rich he could try become an A lister in Hollywood with time and perseverance. Now that would be much better and you being from the United States should be more informed on what are his chances.
Any path he chooses I wish him luck.
It also depends on getting the right project to work on. From the role,scrip, producer and director.
While i wish William all the best at anything he does, i still hope he can do some more novelas.
You are so right about Televisa and i see he already has so many fans from other countries because of this.
We'll just have to wait and see how the movies is when it comes out.In the meantime he'll be working on it for about four months.
The ones who have succeeded, Meg Ryan, Tom Selleck,Cristopher Reeves Sarah Michelle Gellar, Eva longoria, Demi Moore,Julianne Moore,even Brad Pitt.
The ones not so successful Joshua Jackson, Tyler Christopher, Carlos ponce tried american tv.Eduardo Yanez made a couple of american movies also.
So it depends on what choices these actors have made to make a successful transition from the little screen to the big screen.
Those former soap stars who became major tv stars.
He did a novela, two plays and two movies (one Mex, one US).
Then another novela, a play, a few Mex movies, and a travel show.
Then another novela, and when that finishes, who knows? Maybe that US tango movie will finally get started - I can only hope!
I'd imagine the actors get really tired of playing the same novela formula again and again. Dabbling in other media not only would be a welcome change of scenery, but it would also improve Levy as an actor - give him a wider base of experience.
The thing I don't know is whether Televisa owns Levy like most of its actors. If so, I'm sure they wouldn't let him flit around. They might loan him out for one project, but they don't like their serfs to stray too far.
