Sogepaq makes ‘Bed’

Distrib house takes on sales rights to tuner

Leading Spanish distrib and international sales house Sogepaq has taken overseas sales rights to the hit musical “Los dos lados de la cama” (The Two Sides of the Bed).

Sequel to “El otro lado de la cama” (The Other Side of the Bed), also directed by Emilio Martinez-Lazaro, the romantic comedy follows two characters from the original — feckless best friends Javier (Guillermo Toledo) and Pedro (Ernesto Alterio) — and adds girlfriends Marta and Requel, played by Veronica Sanchez and Lucia Jimenez. Unfortunately for the lads, in a typical twist for a Spanish film, the girls happen to be lovers.

“Two Sides” grossed E7.6 million ($9.3 million) off a late December release domestically.

Reteaming the producers of “Other Side,” “Two Sides” is produced by Telespan 2000, broadcaster Telecinco film arm Estudios Picasso and Impala.
