Noury’s take on Latino mafia

Young duo to set pic in Madrid

Swel and Imad Noury, the twentysomething Moroccan-Spanish directors of Panorama pic “Heaven’s Doors” are prepping a new pic, “Los Comanches,” about Madrid’s Colombian mafia.

They will be aided by vet sales agent Massimo Saidel at Latido, the Madrid-based sales consortium. Latido has taken sales rights on “Doors.” “These guys have immense talent and an exciting career ahead of them,” Saidel said.

“Los Comanches” departs from a screenplay by Swel Noury written after he worked at Madrid’s El Pinar young offender detention center, whose inmates were often immigrants.

Pic will maintain the same key tech team of “Doors,” such as its Spanish editors Eloy Gonzalez and Goyo Villasevil and Portuguese DP Paulo Ares. Pic follows a young Colombian who travels to Madrtid as a young drug mule and then uses the drugs to set upon his own in business.

“The will follow the rise-and-fall arc of many mobster and mafias movies,” said Swel Noury.

Per Imad Noury, who handles more technical duties in the directorial duo, pic is likely “to be shot in 16mm, giving it a grainy feel, with two-to-three handheld cameras to capture the rawness of immigrant Madrid.”
