Giovanni M. Porta is expanding his range…
The Latino screenwriter and producer has signed with Range Media Partners.
Porta’s first produced project, At Midnight, premiered on Paramount+ in February.
The Mexican rom-com directed by Jonah Feingold tells the story of two people who do their best not to fall in love. The film centers on hotel manager Alejandro (Diego Boneta), who lives a predictable life according to plan, and Sophie (Monica Barbaro), a beautiful rising movie star with an unreliable celebrity boyfriend. During a visit to Mexico’s beach to shoot scenes for her new movie, Super Society, Sophie meets and becomes enamored with Alejandro. Neither of them will be able to avoid falling in love and going against all odds.
Porta wrote the script with Feingold and Maria Hinojosa and also served as co-executive producer.
He currently has further projects in development with Paramount+, as well as such notable producers as Platinum Dunes, Mandalay Pictures, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Karen Rosenfelt.
Porta previously penned the biopic Hedy, on the Old Hollywood starlet Hedy Lamarr, which Amazon Studios awarded Best Screenplay, as part of the Athena’s List screenwriting competition in 2019.
The Pepperdine University grad was born and raised in both Miami, Florida and Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
