Netflix announced it will premiere ‘Como caido del cielo’, a new original Mexican film to be officially launched next December 24th, focused on Mexican actor and singer Pedro Infante’s life, and starred by actors Omar Chaparro and Ana Claudia Talancon.
In the film, Mexican actor Omar Chaparro is Pedro Guadalupe Ramos, an Infante’s imitator. The singer and actor was going through different problems for more than 60 years, since his controversial love past has not allowed him to get into heaven, despite all happiness he generated in his life. After pleading for another attempt to gain his access to paradise once he is dead, Infante is sent back, but on his imitator’s body, to solve his life.
The task will not be easy for him, since Pedro Guadalupe’s marriage is coming to an end because he was unfaithful with Samantha, his wife (Raquel)’s cousin (Ana Claudia Talancon). However, Infante, on his imitator’s body, immediately falls in love with Raquel and will do everything to prove that he is a new man, straighten Pedro Guadalupe’s marriage and avoid any templation to get to heaven.
‘When this project came to us, we decided not to make a biographical film. We wanted to make a kindly and fun tribute that follows our icon, while looking for surrender and love on the screen. We were excited to partner with Netflix to bring this film to life for the whole family’, said producer Carolyn Caldera De Fanti.
‘Como caído del cielo’ was produced by Esparza Caldera Entertainment and La Victoria Films, and featured Pepe Bojórquez, Antonio Ruiz Arrieta, Carolyn Caldera de Fanti, Jean-Luc De Fanti, Moctesuma Esperanza and Omar Chaparro as producers.
