David Zayas is reporting for strict daddy duty…
The 57-year-old Puerto Rican actor and former Dexterstar will portray Fernando Capulet, Juliet’s wealthy business tycoon father in the modern-day adaptation of William Shakespeare’s classic Romeo and Juliet.
R#J, which will be shot using the Screenlife format, is described as a pulse-pumping mashup of Shakespearean language and “of the times” vernacular for social media infused generation.
The film is set in the lush and storied Louisiana area and takes place through the mobile phones of our two lovers Romeo and Juliet. Carey Williamsdirected the pic, which he co-wrote with Rickie Castaneda.
Zayas’ credits include The Expendables, Skyline ,13, and Michael Clayton.
