Toronto: Forastero, Rizoma Link for Sandoval’s ‘Lots of Ex, Little Sex’

14 September 2015 1:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Chilean director Che Sandoval (“Much Better Than You”) will lend his keen sense of character and sharp ear for dialogue to “Lots of Ex, Little Sex,” from “The Maid” producer Forastero, and Rizoma, a driving force behind the New Argentine Cinema.

Now at a final draft screenplay, “Ex” is being moved at Toronto by Forastero partner Florencia Larrea and its new executive produce, Lucas Engel.

A dramatic comedy, per Sandoval, “Ex” will star Argentine Antonella Costa, who broke through as a Dirty War torture victim in Marco Bellis’ “Olympus Garage,” and starred in Eduardo Mignona’s “The Wind” and Alejandro Chomski’s “Today and Tomorrow.”

Costa plays Marcela, a 35-year-old Argentine singer who was a sex-fiend until 30, then falls in love and, when dumped, become frigid and loses her voice. Finally, she meets Chilean Carlos, who turns her on, and pursues him to Chile, thinking he’s her last chance with a man. »
