Galba takes ‘El Cobrador’ to world

Shingle to handle worldwide sales of pol drama

MADRID — Galba Prods., Marina Fuentes’ new Madrid-based sales and production shingle, will handle worldwide sales outside Spain, Portugal, Mexico and Argentina on Paul Leduc’s “El Cobrador: In God We Trust,” a selection for the Orrizonti section at the upcoming Venice fest.

Leduc’s potentially polemical political drama toplines Peter Fonda as a well-heeled but unhinged mining corporation exec who gets a thrill from running down pedestrians at night and Lazaro Ramos as a terrorist who exacts revenge on the affluent West in the name of the downtrodden third world.

Vet Mexican auteur Leduc wrote the script, adapting short stories by Brazilian writer Rubem Fonseca. Pic was shot in Mexico, Rio de Janeiro, New York and Miami and in Spanish, Portuguese and English.

It is produced by Leduc’s Mexican label Salamandra Producciones, the Bertha Navarro-run Tequila Gang in Mexico, the Almodovar brothers’ El Deseo in Madrid and Don Ranvaud and Robert Bevan’s London-based Buena Onda, with further financing from Argentina’s Arca Difusion and Mexico’s Imcine Film Institute.

“This film is a great exercise on Paul’s side in posing the question, ‘Why do people hate us?’ Whether the question comes from the U.S., or Latin America citizens, Africans or Europeans, Jews or Palestinians, its timing is perfect,” said Fuentes.
