Grupo hits on ‘Trespasser’

Rights deal includes theatrical release

Brazil’s Grupo Novo de Cinema e TV has licensed Roberto (“Beto”) Brandt’s “The Trespasser” to the U.K.’s Gala Films. The all rights deal includes a theatrical release.

Brandt is regarded by many as Brazil’s hottest young helmer.

His first pic, 1997’s “Belly Up,” was developed at a Sundance script workshop. The next, “Friendly Fire,” was selected for the Sundance Festival. “Trespasser” won the Latin American film award at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival. It went on to screen a Panorama section in Berlin.

Pic, which includes a star turn by Brazilian rock icon, Paulo Miklos, turns on two partners at a construction company who hire a hit-man. But the contract sours.

Pic sold after Berlin to France’s ID Distribution. It opened in Brazil in April to enthusiastic reviews.
