Latido slates picks up pair

Sked to include 'Mirrors,' 'Suicide Club'

MADRID — Latido will be handling interna-tional sales on “Buena Vida” (Mirrors), the next film from Chilean Andres Wood, director of breakout hit “Ma-chuca.”

Also new on Latido’s slate for Cannes is Roberto Santiago’s “El club de los suicidas” (Suicides Club), his darkly humorous follow-up to “The Longest Penalty in the World.”

Co-produced by Spain’s Tornasol Films and the director’s label, Andres Wood Prods., “Buena Vida” is a comedy set in a hairdressing salon that cross-cuts stories featuring three couples from different social classes in Santiago de Chile.

Cast is yet to be finalized, Latido managing director Massimo Saidel said, adding that there’s a good chance the pic will reteam Wood with Manuela Martelli, the sassy cousin in “Machuca.”

Produced by Tornasol and written by Santiago, “Suicides Club” will again topline popular Spanish TV actor Fernando Tejero, who played the lead in “Longest Penalty,” helping it to a standout E5.1 million ($6.4 million) in Spain.

Pic turns on three suicides who meet to kill one another but instead realize assisted suicide could prove a lucrative business. Like “Longest Penalty,” “Club” will be produced by Tornasol Films.

Latido also will handle the Nathalie Caboron/Tresplanos/Tornasol-produced “Cara de queso” (Cheese Cake), an oddball coming-of-age debut from Argentina’s Ariel Winograd, set in a Jewish country-club community outside Buenos Aires.
