Riverdale Actor Camila Mendes Stars in New Movie Música on Prime Video

Production Update

Camila Mendes will be getting in touch with her Brazilian roots as she takes on Amazon’s upcoming feature film “Música”. The film is set to begin production this summer. “Rim of the World” (2019) actor Rudy Mancuso will play a young man, plagued by the music in his head. He is forced to come to terms with an uncertain future while balancing love, family and Brazilian culture in Newark, New Jersey.

“Música” Cast and Crew

Mendes is also dual-hatted on this production. She is filling the starring role while also acting as the film’s Executive Producer. While her on-camera persona Veronica Lodge is of Mexican descent in Mendes’ hit CW show “Riverdale”, she traces her roots back to Brazil in real-life. A native Portuguese speaker, Mendes will be tapping into her cultural background to bring the Brazilian-American love story to life.

For Mendes’ co-star, “Música” will only be Mancuso’s third feature film following Netflix’s “Rim of the World” and the upcoming DCEU movie “The Flash” (2023). “Música” will also be written and directed by Mancuso. The film will be a bit of a homecoming story for Mancuso who was raised in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. The son of a Brazilian mother, Mancuso spent some time living in Brazil and speaks Portuguese fluently.

“Música” will reunite many of the creative minds behind Netflix’s 2020 Horror/Comedy film “The Babysitter: Killer Queen” (2020). Producers McG, Steven Bello, Dan Lagana, and Mary Viola will all be reunited for the creation of another film. Brothers and Shots Studios co-founders Sam and John Shahidi will also be producing the new film.
