For the last couple weeks in Rincon you could catch several actors at the bars, beaches and Sunday Farmers Market. That is because Amazon is using Rincon as the filming location for it's drama pilot "Mad Dogs". During this time one of the actors, Romany Malco, was using his public facebook page to show off all the beauty of Puerto Rico (which was fun to see).
Although they 'say' the location is Belize - it is really Rincon Puerto Rico - essentially the same beauty you enjoy from your Rincon Apartment Rental!
Here is some scoop from the Hollywood Reporter ...
- The streaming service (Amazon) has tapped Steve Zahn, Romany Malco and Ben Chaplin to star in Shawn Ryan's adaptation of Mad Dogs, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
- Mad Dogs, from Sony Pictures Television, centers on four former frat brothers who travel to Belize for a reunion with their wealthy old college friend only to have their luxury vacation interrupted by murder, conspiracy and a psychotic gang lord who is out for their hides.
- Zahn will play Cobi, a 40ish, married financial adviser described as a slick and amusing guy who is fighting the onset of middle age by dressing a little too young, complete with his blond highlights and Abercrombie style. He joins his old pals, Gus (Malco), Lex and Joel (Chaplin), for the jaunt to Belize to visit wealthy friend Milo.
- The Sopranos alum Michael Imperioli has joined the cast of Amazon's Shawn Ryan drama pilot Mad Dogs
It seems the filming has stopped for now. But if we hear or see any activity we will let you know.
Enjoy your Rincon Vacation!
