Andy Garcia To Embark On New Latino Project

10 April 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Andy Garcia is again returning to his Latin roots, signing up to be executive producer of a TV movie about the life of a Cuban-American doctor. The picture, by Home Box Office (HBO), is based on Doctor Pedro Jose Greer's 1999 memoir Waking Up In America: How One Doctor Brings Hope To Those Who Need It Most. Greer founded Miami's Camillus Health Concern, a downtown clinic that treats the poor and homeless. This will mark Garcia's second Latino-themed project for HBO - the first being last year's For Love Or Country: The Arturo Sandoval Story, a film based on the famed Cuban trumpeter's life, which earned Garcia a 2001 Golden Globe nomination. Garcia is currently filming Ocean's Eleven opposite a star-studded cast. »
