PANAMA : Panama Gets Into The Picture...Business.


     At least 7 major movie or TV productions are scheduled to be shot in Panama in 2013.
     Big stars like Robert De Niro, Benicio del Toro and Gael Garcia Bernal will be acting there.
    Panama's sudden popularity can be traced to a law passed last year...that reimburses 15% of movie costs on productions costing more than $3 million.
    And...the fear of narco violence in Mexico.
    It's a big change for a small nation that previously had hosted only 2 major film productions.
