Jeremy Kay in Los Angeles, 05 March 2006

Roberto Jabor will make his feature directorial debut on the Brazilian gay romance Copacabana, Of Love And Shadows from his own screenplay.

Alex Massis of Florida-based production and sales company The Film Source will serve as executive producer on the $5m English-language project, which is set to begin shooting in the autumn in Rio de Janeiro.

"Copacabana tells a story of a handsome and wealthy English artist who meets a Brazilian street kid," Jabor said.

"It looks like a match made in heaven. Maybe it is, but not if the drag queen that haunts both their pasts has anything to say about it!"

The project is currently out to casting.
