HOLLYWOOD — Joint distrib venture Columbia TriStar/BVI Mexico has grabbed all Mexican rights to the hottest film shooting in Colombia, “Rosario Tijeras.”

Spain’s Maestranza Films and France’s Shadow Films bring in European money while Brazil’s Teleimage and Colombia’s Clara Maria Ochoa Prods. and Dulce Compania contribute more Latin American funding. “Given the scarce resources in the region, international and pan-regional cooperation is the most viable way to make a Latino film nowadays,” said Rio Negro’s Matthias Ehrenberg. Ehrenberg co-produced the Brazilian/Mexican co-production “Sex, Shame and Tears,” a Brazilian remake of the Mexican blockbuster produced by his former company, Titan.

Ehrenberg is in talks with other companies for Latin American and U.S. rights. Based on the bestseller by Colombian Jorge Franco Ramos, “Rosario Tijeras” has been shooting in Medellin where the novel is set. Paris-based Mexican docu filmmaker Emilio Maille makes his feature debut based on a screenplay by Argentina’s Marcelo Figueras. Figueras has written two pics by Argentina’s Marcelo Pineyro, “Burnt Money” and “Kamchatka.”

New York-based Colombian Flora Martinez plays Rosario, a woman out for revenge on the men who have harmed her since childhood. Colombia’s Manuel Cardona and Spain’s Unax Ugalde play the wealthy admirers who get sucked into her underworld of drugs and violence.
