‘Fermat’s Room’ finds buyers

Shochiku, Revolver, A Plus nab horror film

Horror pic “La habitacion de Fermat” (Fermat’s Room), the feature debut of Spanish helmers Luis Piedrahita and Rodrigo Sopena, has been bought for Japan by Shochiku, for the U.K. by Revolver Ent. and for Turkey by A Plus Films.

The Shochiku deal is an achievement; flooded by domestic productions, Japan has proved far tougher to crack than the U.S. when it comes to Spanish pics.
