MainPix on ‘Bullfighter’

Western to shoot in Texas and Mexico

NEW YORK — Kit Carson and Cynthia Hargrave’s Gotham-based production company MainPix will team with Scanbox to produce Danish writer-director Rune Bendixen’s “Bullfighter,” a millennium Western that will shoot in Texas and Mexico this summer.

MainPix also has formed a joint venture with Daniel O’Toole’s ReelArt, a London-based production and finance company, to produce a slate of eight films that would be partially funded over a three-year period with insurance-backed financing from C.E. Heath.

The slate will be a mixture of films from first-time and established directors and will have budgets ranging from $3 million to $15 million, Carson said.

Carson, best known for writing “Paris, Texas” and the American remake of “Breathless,” and his wife, Hargrave, formed MainPix last year to launch new writer-directors.

The duo executive produced Morgan J. Freeman’s 1997 Sundance prize-winner “Hurricane,” which was released by MGM/UA under the name “Hurricane Streets.”

Previously, Carson and Hargrave, along with James L. Brooks’ Gracie Films, produced newcomer Wes Anderson’s “Bottle Rocket,” a Columbia Pictures release.

“Our skills seem to support first-timers all the way from their dreams to the prize,” Hargrave said.

“Mimic” helmer Guillermo del Toro is set to direct Carson’s latest screenplay, “Montecristo.” Intermedia and American Zoetrope will be financing the project, a screen adaptation of the classic Alexandre Dumas novel. The project is being announced at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

MainPix is currently in post-production on writer-director Aditya Bhattacharya’s “One Way,” a romantic comedy starring Lothaire Bluteau (“Jesus of Montreal”) and Stefania Rocca (Miramax’s upcoming “Nirvana”).

Carson is managed by Hilly Elkins. MainPix is repped by Johnnie Planco of William Morris Associates.
