Tulum was a piece Fellini wrote in 1985; however, while it was adapted by Tullio Pinelli and published as a book, it never got the cameras rolling. The project focuses on Fellini's trip to Mexico to meet Carlos Castaneda, a famous mystic known for his controversial practices and shamanism. Production will be split between Mexico and Rome's Cinecitta Studios, for a crisp budget of at least $5 million; Tulum's backers say that half the funding has been secured, and that most of it has come from the Mexican government and Mexican investors. I imagine that some Fellini-files will step on board soon enough to top off the budget. The January start date will be the twentieth, which would have been Fellini's 88th birthday. I haven't read the piece myself, so I ask you out there, big Fellini fans who've read Voyage to Tulum -- are you ready to see it finally hit the big screen?
