SPC buys rights to film ‘De Eso’

Sony Pictures Classics has acquired all U.S. and Canadian rights to “De Eso No Se Habla” (I Don’t Want to Talk About It), the Marcello Mastroianni starrer set for competition at the Venice Film Festival Sept. 4.

Pic, helmed by Argentine filmmaker Maria Louisa Bemberg, plays the Toronto fest on Sept. 13.

The acquisition reprised the successful negotiations between Sony Pictures Classics and The Sales Co., the film’s sales agent, which also represented “Orlando,” SPC’s current release.

“De Eso” (title is likely to change before its U.S. release next year) stars Mastroianni as a late-in-life bachelor who falls for a younger woman. The comedy is set in Argentina in the late 1930s.

Bemberg, whose 1984 “Camilla” was a foreign-language film Oscar nominee, wrote the screenplay with Jorge Goldenberg based on a short story by Julio Llinas.
