Duo pact for firm

Shingle teams with funder for film sales

CANNES — Three Dots Entertainment, one of the few commercially oriented Taiwanese production shingles, has teamed with movie funder Serenity Entertainment to launch Taiwan’s first film sales firm Serenity Entertainment Intl.

Outfit will handle pictures produced by Three Dots and pick up third-party product.

First outside pictures are “Better Luck Tomorrow,” a drama by Justin Lin that preemed at Sundance, and “In the Dreams of the Unreal,” a docu by Jessica Yu that bowed in Sundance’s documentary competish.

Serenity Intl. is also launching Three Dots’ biggest production to date, “Resurrection,” a revenge thriller by helmer Leste Chen, who last year delivered boffo chiller “The Heirloom” for Three Dots. Serenity Intl. is opening the pic for pre-sales and seeking European co-producers.

Also new on Three Dots’ slate is “Metrosexual 101.” Romantic comedy, to be helmed by Rady Fu, will dissect Taiwan’s male geek population and lense this summer for an early 2007 theatrical release.

“It is time for Taiwan companies to learn the international business for themselves. While the local market is still underdeveloped we believe that the international marketplace presents the largest potential,” Three Dots prexy Michelle Yeh said.

Three Dots’ third title, “My DNA Says I Love You,” will be handled by Hong Kong’s Focus Films, maintaining the relationship between helmer Robin Lee and Focus.
