Black List to tap Spain for talent

Madrid, Barcelona to have film financing ops

MADRID — Black List Films, the European label of Chris and Roberta Hanley’s L.A.-based Muse Prods., is looking to set up shop in Spain.

Black List exec Fernando Sulichin was quoted Wednesday in daily newspaper El Mundo saying Black List will set up film financing ops in Madrid and Barcelona to tap local talent to make radical features.

Sulichin made his comments at the Venice Intl. Film Festival, which is screening Black List’s first pic, Larry Clark’s “Bully.” He went on to praise Spanish directors Alex de la Iglesia (“Perdita Durango”), Santiago Segura (the “Torrente” saga) and Victor Erice (“The Spirit of the Beehive,” “The South”).

Black List was created by Chris Hanley and Sulichin last October to fund a slate of more than a dozen pics, working principally with German, French and English companies. Hanley’s credits include “American Psycho”; Sulichin’s credits include “The Addiction.”
