Berlinale: Film Factory Sells to Arp Selection All French Rights to Paco Plaza’s Horror Movie ‘Veronica’

13 February 2017 11:34 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Arp Selection, one of France’s premier arthouse distributors, has acquired all French rights to “Veronica,” a real case-based horror movie by “Rec” co-director Paco Plaza.

The deal was negotiated by Michele Halberstadt and Laurent Petin at Arp with Film Factory Ent.’s Vicente Canales, who handles movie’s international rights.

Enrique López Lavigne (“The Impossible,” “A Monster Calls”) produces at Apache Films. Sony Pictures plans a theatrical release in Spain by next fall.

Plaza, one of Spain’s biggest genre film talents, directs in “Veronica” a largely female cast, including Ana Torrent (“The Other Boleyn Girl”), Leticia Dolera (“The Bride”), Consuelo Trujillo (“The Bride”) and debutant Sandra Escarcena.

Berlinale: ‘Viceroy’s House’ Is Personal and Political Says Gurinder Chadha

13 February 2017 3:21 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Contemporary politics came to the fore once again at the Berlin Film Festival. This time it concerned “Viceroy’s House,” Gurinder Chadha’s period piece about turbulent events at the time that India separated from the British Empire.

While the end of end of empire is clearly large canvas stuff, Chadha chose not only to set the film in a microcosm – the ridiculously opulent palace inhabited by the Viceroy of India and 500 servants – she also pitched it as a personal project.

Chadha was born in East Africa of Punjabi parents and grew up in the U.K. where hostile locals told her to go home. “But my homeland was now in Pakistan,” she said. She refused to call it anything other than “pre-partition India,” until a research trip took her to the Punjab and her family’s ancestral home, where five refugee families had taken up residence.
