Buenos Aires – One of Argentina’s most revered actors, Dario Grandinetti (“Wild Tales,” “Talk to Her”), will play Jorge Mario Bergoglio, archbishop of Buenos Aires, who anointed Pope Francis in March of last year, in “Francisco,” an awaited vision of the pope originated in his native Argentina.
Disney distributes in Argentina, the rest of Latin America and Spain. Buenos Aires-based Pablo Bossi, one of Argentina’s best-known producers (“Nine Queens,” “The Games Maker,” “Son of the Bride,” “Chinese Takeaway”), is producing. Another Argentine vet, Beda Docampo Feijoo (“Camila,” “Los amores de Kafka,” “El marido perfecto”), has written and will direct “Francisco,” which goes into production Jan. 12 in Buenos Aires. The nine-week shoot then segues to locations in Madrid and Rome. “Francisco’s” world premiere is set for July 2015.
FilmSharks Intl. is bringing “Francisco” onto the international market at Ventana Sur, which kicked off Monday in Buenos Aires.
