Dante Basco to direct 'The Fabulous Filipino Brothers'

'Hook' and 'Avatar' star will make his directorial debut in the dark romantic comedy.



Dante Basco, best known for his role as Rufio in Steven Spielberg's Hook and as the voice of Prince Zuko in Avatar: The Last Airbender, will make his directorial debut in The Fabulous Filipino Brothers. And it looks like he's bringing his whole family along for the ride.

Set in Basco's hometown of Pittsburg, California, and starring Dante and his brothers -- Darion, Dionysio and Derek -- the dark romantic comedy weaves together four vignettes, narrated by their sister, Arianna Basco.

The story follows the brothers and their shenanigans. One of them ventures off to a cockfight for reciprocity while one flies to old Manila where an old flame is rekindled. Another brother delves into the hidden sensuality of Filipino cuisine, while the last brother, struggles to heal deep wounds and finds love in an unexpected package. All this, leading to a shotgun wedding in the backyard of the family house.
