Spain’s Notro picks up ‘Grace’

Pic won Sundance audience award

MADRID — Spanish mini-major Notro Films has inked with the Weinstein Co. to take Spanish rights to the John Cusack widower drama “Grace Is Gone.”

The winner of the 2007 Sundance Audience Award, “Grace” tells the story of a father who takes his two daughters on a road trip trying to find the right time to tell them their soldier mother was killed in the Iraq war.

Notro’s cult pic and fantasy pic distribution arm, the Madrid-based Versus Ent., has also closed on two other prized pics.

From Media 8, Versus has taken the Brad Pitt-produced documentary “God Grew Tired of Us,” directed by Christopher Dillon Quinn and narrated by Nicole Kidman.

Doc won Sundance’s 2006 Audience Award and Grand Jury Prize.

From South Korea’s CJ Ent., Versus has bought Park Chan-wook’s “I’m a Cyborg, but That’s OK,” a comedy that won the Alfred Bauer Prize at Berlin fest.

“There’s a wealth of product at Cannes, but prices are high and Spain’s on its knees,” Versus head of acquisitions Adrian Guerra said at Cannes.
