Hollywood Movie Shot in Davao is Coming Soon

19Jul08

Do you remember the hoopla about the Hollywood movie shot partially in Compostela Valley a year ago? People went crazy over the actor Josh Hartnett who is about to set foot on Davao soil. The time has finally come. The Hollywood movie “I Come With The Rain” released a 5-minute promo. The film stars Josh Hartnett as an ex-cop turned private investigator who goes to Asia looking for a billionaire’s missing son. He ends up in Hong Kong, where he has to deal with a gangster played by Lee Byung Hyun (soon to be seen in “G.I. Joe”) and a cop played by Shawn Yue who may be more trouble than he’s worth.

Here is the 5-minute promo

This long promo of “I Come with the Rain” just gave us some major spoilers. Anyway, the scenes shot from Mt. Diwalwal of Compostela Valley province was adequately featured. I also think that what happened in Mt. Diwalwal is vital to the plot so I expect a lot of screen time for the place. But, the whole province will suffer the stigma of being stereotyped as a place where rebels with guns can freely walk on roads (unpaved), poverty, witchcraft, murder, lawlessness and under development. Funny, they labeled the place “Mindanao, Philippines” and not Mt. Diwalwal of Compostela Valley province.

Still, the movie looks interesting. It looks more like an Asian movie with an American lead rather than a Hollywood production. It has an indie feel but the dialog is kinda cheesy. I am looking forward to see this film because I am curious to see Davao and Compostela Valley in big screen.
