Danny Glover To Get Backing For Film From Venezuela's Chavez

Danny Glover, who costarred in the Lethal Weapon movies with Mel Gibson, has been granted nearly $18 million by the leftist Venezuelan government to make a historical movie in Venezuela about Toussaint Louverture, the heroic leader of the Haitian revolt that led to the country's independence in the early 1800s, Britain's Guardian newspaper reported today (Monday). Glover is a supporter of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. According to the Guardian, the film will be financed with funds from a recent bond sale with Argentina. Glover told the newspaper that preproduction of the film, titled Toussaint, is already "so advanced that you can taste it."
