Morgan Freeman, Frank Grillo to Star in Action Movie ‘Panama’

Morgan Freeman and Frank Grillo are starring in the action movie “Panama” with Daniel Adams directing from a script he co-wrote with William R. Barber.

Highland Film Group will handle worldwide sales, which will launch at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival. “Panama” will be produced by Michelle Chydzik Sowa and Michelle Reihel, with Barber also serving as executive producer.

Inspired by true events and set in 1989 Panama, Grillo will portray a rugged, decorated ex-marine who is sent undercover by his former commander, played by Freeman, to execute a high-value deal with untrustworthy adversaries. While navigating through the chaos of the local civil war, he must fight assassins, court femmes fatales and negotiate with the enemy in order to complete his mission. Principal photography is set to commence in November.

Trump Admin Travels to Panama to Address Drug and Human Trafficking Route to US Border.

The Trump Administration has been working with Central American countries to help stem the flow of migrants making their way north to the United States.

Last week, the Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan traveled to the country of Panama to encourage that country to do more, and it appears these efforts are paying off.

He came to the Latin American nation hoping to increase cooperation between the US and the new Panamanian President Laurentino Cortizo.

Immigration officials partner with Panama to boost screening of migrants passing through to U.S.

A Guatemalan official thumbed through the soft soiled pages of a ragged Pakistani passport for a man who had just emerged from the jungle.

The disheveled migrant stared ahead as the nation’s interior minister and acting U.S. homeland security secretary Kevin McAleenan reviewed the visa stamps inside the worn document: Yemen, Djibouti, Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

The man had traveled all over a distant hemisphere but had found his way to a humanitarian camp on the edge of one of the most dangerous corridors in Latin America.

“We got to take a look at this cat,” McAleenan said as he watched an agent take fingerprints, retinal scans and other biometrics, destined for an information-sharing program that checks the data against U.S. and international criminal databases.

Traveling to Panama on a budget? We can help!

Find the best deals on flights, where to stay, where to eat, and where to shop, all before you’ve stepped foot in this wonderful Central American country. Here are a few pointers to help get you started.

Traveling smart in Panama during any season requires a certain amount of planning ahead, although, if you need to book last minute, you can still get some great deals. Your best bet for flights is to book about 10 weeks ahead of your scheduled departure. Another good idea is to be flexible about your dates. If you have flexible vacation time, or flexibility in your agenda while in Panama, you will have many more price options for flights and hotels. Typically, the best (and cheapest) days to fly are Tuesdays and Thursdays, and if you’re willing to endure some connecting flights, you can drive the price down even further.
