Mignogna pic gets back on track

Helmer-scribe died last month

HUELVA, Spain — “La Senal,” the film project that Argentinean helmer-scribe Eduardo Mignogna (“The Wind,” “The Escape”) had in pre-production when he died suddenly Oct. 6, will see the light of day.

Project will still topline Argentine star Ricardo Darin (“The Son of the Bride,” “Nine Queens”) and up-and-coming thesp Diego Peretti (“It’s Not You, It’s Me”). A new helmer will shortly be attached.

Mignogna’s posthumous pic will be co-produced by Spain’s Wanda, Fenix and Manantial and a trio of Argentine production houses — Patagonik, Retratos, and Pampa.

“The cast, crew and artistic team will remain the same. It’s going to be an homage to Eduardo. We should begin shooting in March 2007,” Wanda CEO Jose Maria Morales revealed at the 32nd Huelva Ibero-American Film Fest, where he was honored Monday with a lifetime achievement award.

Mignogna adapted “La Senal” from his hit novel of the same title. The romantically-laced and sometimes violent detective yarn is set during Eva Peron’s last days. A pair of low-ranking, bohemian gum-shoes, more given to whisky and women than procedural donkey work, are suddenly plunged into a corruption affair involving the Mafia.
