Thierry Forte’s Paris-based production and sales company DMVB has taken international sales rights to San Sebastian competition player “El Leyton,” helmed by Chile’s Gonzalo Justiniano.
DMVB co-produced the film with Chile’s Cinecorp and Television Acional de Chile.
A study of the sexual psychosis inspiring Latino machismo, “El Leyton” portrays a womanizer who ruins his best friend’s life by attempting to seduce his wife.
The pickup continues Forte’s close relationship with Spanish-lingo cinema. He co-produced high-profile pics such as Agustin Diaz Yanes’ “No News From God,” starring Penelope Cruz and Victoria Abril. Pic screened at the San Sebastian film fest Wednesday.
