Fox has ‘Elipsis’ in Latin America

Hyphenate Arias-Nath's feature debut finds distrib

Fox Latin America has nabbed the Latin American distribution rights to “Elipsis,” the feature debut of Venezuelan scribe-helmer-producer Eduardo Arias-Nath.

Like 20th Century Fox Latin America’s previous pickup, Ricardo de Montreuil’s “La mujer de mi hermano” from Chile, “Elipsis” has a pan-Latin cast.

Arias-Nath bowed his first short, “Black & White,” at the Venice Film Festival.

Produced by his Anthropolitan Films, “Elipsis” will be shot in Caracas between February and April. Plot details are under wraps.

Arias-Nath studied drama as a child and taught film classes to high school students. He recently worked at MTV and Nickelodeon and started an Internet venture called Tokenzone, which offers promotion and marketing services to Hollywood studios.

“La mujer de mi hermano” opened Jan. 12 in Chile and Peru and the following day in Venezuela and ranked second after “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” in all three territories. In Peru, it had the second-best opening of all time.

Lionsgate has U.S. rights and has pushed back “Hermano’s” release to spring.
