Arcadia sets up ‘Glory’ and ‘Victor’

Cormenzana pic to lense in 2005

Spanish production company Arcadia is readying two more English-lingo pics to follow Eugenio Mira’s “The Birthday,” which has a promo reel screening at Cannes.

Ibon Cormenzana will direct “Victor: Anonymous,” a contempo suspense-thriller set in New York and Mexico. Mira, who has inked a three-pic deal with Arcadia, is prepping “Fortune and Glory,” which he bills as “‘Johnny Guitar’ meets ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark.'”

Led by Cormenzana and Angel Durandez — Arthur Andersen’s former senior partner, Europe, for media and entertainment — Arcadia plans to make films in the $3 million-$10 million bracket.

“Victor” will lense in early 2005 in Barcelona. It turns on “the limitations of art, the craving for fame,” Cormenzana said at Cannes.

“Fortune,” set in 1991 in the Spanish coastal tourist trap of Benidorm, is the second pic in Mira’s deal with Arcadia.

Now in post-production, “Birthday” toplines Corey Feldman as a guest dating the host’s daughter at a birthday party just before the end of the world.

The 26-year-old Mira broke through to attention with the Kafkaesque short “Fade.”

“In ‘Birthday,’ Feldman appears in every shot. This gives the film an eerie feel. The idea was to make a film which has a fantasy end, but base it around normal characters,” Mira said.
