In first deals, Latido has sold remake options on Javier Fesser’s “Champions” to China’s Funhigh, India’s 200NotOut and Sausalito for the Middle East.
Remake options are about to be closed for France and Brazil, said Latido Films CEO Antonio Saura.
France’s Axel Films has optioned “The Distinguished Citizen” while Kinovista has snapped up “My Masterpiece.”
Other titles in Latido Films remake sales slate are “4×4” and “May God Save Us,”
Going forward, Latido will focus primarily on acquiring titles titles with potential from Spain and Latin America, looking for “highly original, high-concept box office hits in their local markets, especially comedies and thrillers,” Saura said.
Spain’s 2018 Oscars submission, “Champions,” fits that bill perfectly
