Panama is new player in world movie industry
Any city or country loves to see its name up in lights as the setting of a movie. New York and Paris are probably spoiled in that regard. But this year make room for a new player: Panama.
No fewer than seven big international productions will be shot this year in the isthmus country known best for its busy canal.
It is hosting stars of the stature of Robert De Niro, Benicio del Toro, Gael García Bernal and Dwayne Johnson, the former wrestler who goes by the name “The Rock.”
