Brendan Fraser is scheduled to start Millennium Films’ production of Journey to the End of the Night in Sao Paolo, Brazil, September, 2005. A gritty thriller of betrayal beyond redemption set against the harsh backdrop of a South American city defined by drugs, money, sex, and corruption, Journey to the End of the Night pits a tortured son against his father as they separately develop plans to escape the desolation of their lives through a lurid underworld.
