Netflix Acquires Im Global/Canana’s Mundial Title ‘The Chosen Ones’

28 April 2016 12:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix has acquired global rights to David Pablos’ “Las Elegidas” from Mundial, the joint sales venture of Stuart Ford’s Im Global and Canana, the production-sales company of Gael Garcia Bernal, Diego Luna and Pablo Cruz.

Produced by Cruz, Pablos’ breakthrough movie recently scored 13 nominations for Mexico’s Ariel Academy Awards. “The Chosen Ones” was also the first Spanish-speaking title to be announced last year for the Cannes Festival, where it screened in Un Certain Regard. It will bow on Netflix from May 8. Global deal obviously does not not include territories licensed by Mundial. Arp Selection, one of France’s premier art-house distributors, acquired French rights to “The Chosen Ones” in the run-up to Cannes last-year, for instance.

Written by Pablos – with Pedro Peirano, the screenwriter of Pablo Larrain’s Oscar-nominated “No” and co-scribe on Sebastian Silva’s “The Maid” serving as a script consultant – “The Chosen Ones” followed on Pablos’ debut, »

'Death Wish' Remake Is Back on with Bruce Willis

4 March 2016 10:31 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After languishing in development for several years, Paramount and MGM's long-awaited Death Wish remake is finally moving forward. Deadline reports that Bruce Willis has signed on to star, with Israeli filmmakers Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado (Big Bad Wolves) coming aboard to direct. Paramount and MGM will distribute the remake, which hopes to get production started this summer.

The original 1974 Death Wish starred Charles Bronson as an ordinary man who becomes a dangerous vigilante after his wife is killed by street thugs, who also raped his daughter. Joe Carnahan was initially attached to direct, and he also wrote a draft of the screenplay, before he dropped out of the project back in 2013. The filmmaker left the project over a casting dispute, since both Paramount and MGM wanted to cast Bruce Willis, but the director wanted to go in a different direction.

We reported in 2012 that Joe Carnahan wanted to cast »

Bruce Willis To Star In Death Wish Remake From Big Bad Wolves Directors

4 March 2016 9:55 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Aside from raiding his own back catalogue for titles to reboot (ahem, Die Hard), Bruce Willis now turns to Charles Bronson’s. The classic action franchise Death Wish is in Willis’ sights, as Deadline reports he plans to lead the Paramount/MGM remake.

Now, it might be a good idea to take this with a pinch of salt, as a proposed revival of the revenge flick has been bouncing around for years now. In fact, Joe Carnahan (Stretch) was attached to direct at one point – oh, what joy that would have been! Alas, he skipped out, and passed the torch onto Gerardo Naranjo (Miss Bala), who is now being replaced by Big Bad Wolves directors Aharon Keshales & Navot Papushado. There’s no word on whether early drafts by Graham Yost (TV’s Justified) or Dan Gilroy (Nightcrawler) are still in play, but we’ll likely find out soon.

Berlin: Luna, Bichir Topline Canana’s ‘Black Minutes’ (Exclusive)

10 February 2016 11:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Academy Award-nominated Demian Bichir (“A Better Life”), Diego Luna (“Y Tu Mamá También”) and Sofia Espinosa (“Gloria”) will star in “The Black Minutes,” one of two new and high-profile titles brought onto Berlin’s market by Im Global/Canana’s joint sales venture Mundial.

Mexico/L.A.-based, and headed by Luna, Gael Garcia Bernal and Pablo Cruz, Canana also produces “The Black Minutes,” which weighs in as one of the big new players for the U.S. Latino audience, Mexico and beyond.

Mundial will also sell 2016 Sundance-selected “Mr. Pig,” directed by Luna, and starring Danny Glover.

A modern-day film noir and tale of crime, corruption and cover-ups that brings a 20-year-old cold case crashing into the present day, “The Black Minutes” turns on a world weary cop and serial killer confronting past crimes that have tied them together for many years.

Film Review: ‘We Are the Flesh’

10 February 2016 10:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A brother and sister seek refuge with a filthy old man who coerces the siblings into incestuous sexual intercourse, and thereafter into cannibalizing a luckless soldier — a brief synopsis that barely hints at the intensity with which the Mexican shocker “We Are the Flesh” unleashes its joyously demented portrait of humanity. Serving as co-editor as well as writer and director, Emiliano Rocha Minter is very much the author of all the chaos wrought here, and his thoroughly arresting vision could squat quite comfortably alongside Hieronymus Bosch’s depiction of hell. Commercial prospects are understandably limited to iron-stomached auds, though the pic’s opaque narrative will deter straight-up gore-hounds.

To say that Rocha Minter hasn’t made the most polite of debut features is putting it mildly. To borrow a casual understatement from one of its characters: “This is not your average party.” Set almost entirely inside a derelict apartment, “We »

Idris Elba To Lead Long Developing Fox Romance 'The Mountain Between Us'

10 February 2016 2:19 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For a while now, there has been a mountain of sorts between Fox’s desire to turns Charles Martin's “The Mountain Between Us” into a movie, and getting the job done. Gerardo Naranjo (“Miss Bala") was initially slated to direct Michael Fassbender and Margot Robbie (would've loved to see that), before that version fell apart. And then Charlie Hunnam and Rosamund Pike were attached before they too exited. Now another actor is aboard who can hopefully get this thing done.

Mexican Film Industry Reacts to Sean Penn-El Chapo Interview

11 January 2016 12:25 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Did anything happen in Mexico over the last few days except for the recapture of “El Chapo” and Sean Penn’s interview? If so, it was hardly getting much play late Sunday and early Monday from the Spanish-speaking media.

Mexican newspaper El Universal led with a special – “Kate, Sean, El Chapo Links – Documented” plus six Penn-hostile columns; Spain’s El Pais America edition dedicated all its top eight online stories to El Chapo’s detention and interview.

Meanwhile, however, members of Mexico’s film industry, like Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and Gael Garcia Bernal at the Golden Globes, preferred to take a step back, get their heads round the Chapo-Penn meeting and set it in a broader context.

“The fact that two actors had the chance to meet with El Chapo — the most wanted man in the world — only shows the incapacity of the Mexican government to do what it is supposed to do, »
