Tornosol gets slice of ‘Life’

Distribs warm to 'Frost'

MADRID — Tornasol Films is taking a minority equity in Paul Auster-directed “The Inner Life of Martin Frost,” partly against rights for Spain, Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and Chile.

Toplining Irene Jacob and David Thelwis, pic is produced by Portugal’s Clap Filmes, France’s Alma Films and Gerardo Herrero’s Madrid-based Tornasol, with Paolo Branco, Herrero and Tornasol’s Mariela Besuievsky as executive producers.

Branco’s Gemini Films handles international sales outside Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and Chile, where “Inner Life” will be sold by Spanish sales consortium Latido Films, which Tornasol partly owns.

In “Inner Life,” Martin Frost, a character in Auster’s novel “The Book of Illusions,” retreats to the countryside having just published a successful novel. There he wakes up beside a beautiful woman but neither knows how they ended up in bed together.
