WB Mexico thinks ‘Sultans’ is chic

Pic will be helmed by Lozano from a script by Dalton

Warner Bros. Mexico has set its second local film since opening a shingle last year: bank heist thriller “Sultanes del sur” (Southern Sultans), a co-production with Lemon Films.

Pic will be helmed by Alejandro Lozano from a script by Tony Dalton. The pair were behind Lemon’s modest hit debut “Matando Cabos.”

Warner and government film fund Fidecine have put up the cash for the film, produced by Lemon Film founders Billy and Fernando Rovzar plus Marco Polo Constandse.

Film, set to shoot in Argentina in February, is still casting but will include Dalton.

Warner’s first Mexican pic, Issa Lopez’s dark comedy “Efectos secundarios” (Side Effects), is in post and set for a late spring release.

Leonardo Zimbron, Warner’s head of local productions in Mexico, is reviewing a slate of projects, and the team at Lemon has been pushing for a multipic deal.

Televisa-owned Videocine will bow on July 28 Lemon’s much-hyped horror film “Km 31,” a co-production with Spanish mini-studio Filmax Entertainment and the first feature from scribe and director Rigoberto Castaneda.

Lemon is also developing “Murder in a Chinese Laundry,” written by Eduardo Rossoff, who is also set to direct.
