Cannes — Mexico’s second biggest all-time box office hit, “Nosotros Los Nobles” (“The Noble Family”) will be remade for Colombia by leading local production company Dynamo Prods. with helmer/scribe Felipe Martinez Amador set to direct.
Martinez Amador’s credits include “Bluff” and a number of TV shows including “Tiempo Final,” Kdabra” and “Cumbia Ninja” for Fox International Pictures (Fip).
The original “Nosotros Los Nobles” comedy, helmed by Gary Alazraki, revolves around a wealthy man who decides to teach his entitled kids a lesson by pretending to have lost all his fortune. Pic broke the all-time record of 2002 priest scandal drama “El Crimen del Padre Amaro” soon after its release in 2013. It held the top spot until Eugenio Derbez’s comedy “No Se Aceptan Devoluciones” (“No Instructions Included”) was released the same year and more than doubled “Nobles’” admissions record of 7.1 million.
