Francois, Tielve cast in Dos Santos' feature
LONDON — Belgium actress Deborah Francois and Spanish actor Fernando Tielve will star in “Unmade Beds,” Argentine writer-helmer Alexis Dos Santos’ second feature, which examines love, loss, identity and friendship among young immigrants in London.
Pic, budgeted at $2.5 million, is produced by Soledad Gatti-Pascual (“Noi albinoi”) of The Bureau and Peter Ettedgui (“Onegin”). Gatti-Pascual also produced Dos Santos’ debut “Glue,” a hit on the fest circuit.
“Unmade Beds” was developed with Film4 and is financed by Film4, the U.K. Film Council’s New Cinema Fund and regional screen agency EM Media, with the assistance of film financing bank Natexis Coficine.
Cast for the pic, which is set to shoot in London and Nottingham, also includes Michiel Huisman, Iddo Goldberg and Richard Lintern.
