The film, which he’d  been hinting at for days now, since jetting off to India, is called ‘Scanadlous’ and will be directed by former Blues-Clues co-creator and exec-producer, Todd Kessler, according to Deadline Hollywood. Montano, who has several accolades to his name, having won the International Power Soca Monarch for the past  three years- tying with King Austin ‘ Superblue’ Lyons in 2013, is set to play the role of  a rugged local musician whose charisma threatens the plans of Anand’s wealthy London suitor.

The movie will be filmed in Trinidad and Tobago in October and according to sources, Machel will produce the soundtrack. We also understand ‘Scandalous’ will feature Carnival scenes, offering some level of exposure for the island of revelry.

The last international movie to have been filmed in Trinidad and Tobago was Home Again which was released in April and starred Trinidadian actress, Tatyana Ali. That movie received overwhelming reviews and became the top grossing local movie in movie theatre franchise, Movie Towne’s history.
