CANNES — Douglas Wilson is ankling as Lolafilms VP of international production to head up a new, ambitious production operation at distrib Tripictures.
Wilson was head of acquisitions at top Spanish production house Lolafilms from 1997 to ’99. But as Lola launched a slate of English-lingo pics, Wilson increasingly focused on production. He was associate producer on Manuel Gomez Pereira’s “Off Key.”
One of Spain’s top-grossing indies, with an output deal with Mandalay Pictures, Tripictures aims to originate and produce high-priced international co-productions. Some may be made under the aegis of international producer-distributor Helkon Intl. Pictures. Tripictures is HIP’s Spanish distribution partner.
