According to Variety, Sony BMG Film's first feature pic will be Reggaeton, based on an original screenplay by Albert Leon and to be produced in partnership with Jennifer Lopez's Nuyorican Prods.

Sony BMG Music Entertainment division Sony BMG Film was launched last year with the goal of developing, financing and producing music-related films.

Reggaeton will be shot on location in New York and Puerto Rico, with production expected to begin in the spring.

The story concerns a talented 21-year-old from the South Bronx whose dreams of hip-hop stardom are dashed when a run-in with local thugs forces him to hide in Puerto Rico with the father he never knew.
