According to “El Universal“, the Mexican production “El crimen del padre Amaro” (The Crime of Father Amaro), which 15 years later follows the story of the film of the same name, could even reach the Vatican.
Gabriel Ripstein (600 miles) who along with Daniel Birman, original producer of the film, and Luis Urquiza (Perfect Obedience) are writing the story, and said that they already have the scripts ready to do.
“The big question is: what happened next? And as we meet him again at age 40, he still belongs to the Catholic Church and has learned a lot along the way.
“We start in Mexico, but being a universal institution (the Catholic Church), a global corporation, the idea is to expand it up to Rome”, he emphasizes.
The crime of Father Amaro, starring Gael García Bernal, told the life of a young priest who ended up falling in love and having an affair with a parishioner (Ana Claudia Talancón), whom he forced to have an abortion.
In the following weeks, the aforementioned cinematographers will talk with those who have shown their interest in concreting the project.
