Berlinale: HBO Takes U.S. Rights to ‘Inseparables,’ Argentina’s Remake of ‘The Untouchables’ (Exclusive)

9 February 2017 1:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO Latino has taken U.S. pay TV/Svod rights to “Inseparables,” the Argentine remake of Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache’s French dramedy hit “Intouchables.”

Deal was made by Guido Rud at FilmSharks Intl.

Combining key driving forces behind Latin America’s film sector – top U.S. broadcasters, Hollywood studios and the remake business – deal suggests that pay TV buyers can already put on the table, in some cases, higher figures than theatrical distributors.

Further new accords include Brazil (Paris Filmes), Central America (Wiesner Distribution), Greece (Spentzos Film), Turkey (Tanweer) plus Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia (Eurofilms).

Spain, Germany, France, Japan and Australia are under discussions, Rud said.

The Argentine version, produced by Luis Alberto Scalella’s Sono Film and Viacom’s broadcaster Telefé, was released in Argentina by Disney on Aug. 11, scoring a robust $1.8 million B.O. and 350,000 admissions.

The original “The Intouchables” grossed $427 million worldwide.

For those who haven’t seen the original, it revolved around the true story of a paralyzed aristocrat and his caregiver, a young man who comes from the projects.

In this version, Cranston will take the former role while Hart will slip into the latter. As for the new additions, »
