Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney is in Puerto Rico filming his new movie “Men Who Stare At Goats”.
The executive director of the Corporation of Cinema, Luis Riefkohl, said that the shoot will be extended by three weeks and that he hopes that at some point when the filming stops, press will have some access to the set.
Other actors in the cast are Ewan McGregor and Oscar winner Kevin Spacey, who are also in PR.
“Men Who Stare At Goats”, directed by Grant Heslov, is based on a book by British journalist Jon Ronson about a military unit with paranormal powers fighting the anti-terrorist war.
The script is by Peter Straughan. Heslov and Clooney are partners of the Smoke House Pictures and “Men Who Stare At Goats” is the second production that they collaborate on.
The manager of the Corporation of Cinema, Cristina Caraballo, assured that Clooney wanted to film in the Island because the incentives that the government grants are the most attractive in the world.
After Puerto Rico, the production moves to Albuquerque, and then to New Mexico.
