February 18, 2022
Paramount+, the global streaming service from Paramount, formerly known as ViacomCBS, has announced the start of filming for its original movie At Midnight. Produced by VIS, a division of Paramount, in partnership with Donde Quema el Sol and Three Amigos, the film is filming in Mexico, and is directed by Jonah Feingold, starring renowned Mexican actor Diego Boneta and talented American actress Monica Barbaro.
Joining the cast are Anders Holm (Workaholics, How to be Single), Catherine Cohen (Feingold’s Dating & New York, Lovebirds), Casey Thomas Brown (The Kominsky Method, the upcoming Father of the Bride), Maya Zapata (Selena’s Secret), Fernando Carsa (Acapulco), Whitney Cummings (Whitney, Made of Honor, The Ridiculous 6) and Ricardo Esquerra (Narcos: Mexico).
“At Midnight is the perfect project to kick off 2022 in an epic way,” said actor Diego Boneta. “The film was developed and produced by our production company, Three Amigos, together with VIS. I couldn’t be more excited to be working with such an incredibly talented group of people – including our brilliant filmmaker Jonah Feingold and lovely co-star Monica Barbaro. We are all so passionate about this story and can’t wait for everyone to fall in love with it on Paramount+.”
“I immediately fell in love with the characters and their beautiful story when I read the script,” commented actress Monica Barbaro. “Jonah Feingold, our director, is endlessly collaborative and also somehow manages to be meticulous about his craft and vision for the film, while Diego Boneta is just an absolute dream. Also, shooting here in Mexico with a multicultural cast and crew creates the kind of magical unity that I believe audiences are craving now more than ever. I cannot wait to share the magic we’re experiencing on the set every day with audiences around the world on Paramount+.”
At Midnight is a romantic comedy about two people who do their best not to fall in love. Played by Diego Boneta, Alejandro lives a predictable life according to plan. Sophie, played by Monica Barbaro, is 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 falls in love with the hotel manager. Neither of them will be able to avoid falling in love and going against all odds.
At Midnight is slated to premiere in Latin America in late 2022 and will join the list of premium international scripted originals produced by VIS for Paramount+, such as Los Enviados (The Envoys), Cecilia, and alongside a world-class library, which includes hits like Showtime’s Yellowjackets, Dexter: New Blood, The Handmaid’s Tale, Yellowstone, Your Honor, Mayor of Kingstown, The Father, Honest Thief, Star Trek: Discovery, Queen of the Universe, the reboot of iCarly, Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years, and many more.
