Davis reads Bielinsky’s ‘Aura’

Pic will star 'Nine's' Darin as criminal taxidermist

HOLLYWOOD — Samuel Hadida’s Davis Films Prods. has boarded “El aura,” the second pic from Argentinian helmer Fabian Bielinsky. Davis Films joins co-producers Patagonik Film Group of Argentina and Spain’s Tornasol Films.

Steven Soderbergh and George Clooney’s Section Eight remade Bielinsky’s Patagonik-backed debut pic, “Nueve reinas” (Nine Queens). Titled “Criminal,” the heist caper redo was directed by Gregory Jacobs and released by Warner Independent Pictures this year.

“El aura” stars Ricardo Darin, who also toplined “Nine Queens” and the Oscar-nominated “Son of the Bride” by Juan Jose Campanella. Darin will play a taxidermist with delusions about planning the perfect crime.

At Cannes, UGC-UK snapped up the U.K. rights to “El aura,” paying between $200,000 and $300,000 for the $2.8 million thriller. Patagonik sales chief Octavio Nadal will be at the AFM to further international sales.

Davis Films also is co-producing “Domino,” helmed by Tony Scott and starring Keira Knightley, as well as “Silent Hill,” helmed by Christophe Gans.

Patagonik is co-owned by Buena Vista Intl., Artear Argentina and Telefonica Media.
