Colombian scribe Gustavo Bolivar Moreno, whose novel and its eponymous Colombian TV adaptation “Sin tetas no hay paraiso” (Without Breasts There is No Paradise) is being remade by NBC U and its U.S. Hispanic web Telemundo, is hitting the bigscreen with “El Suicidiario del Monte Venir” (The Suicidarium).
Bolivar has co-written the script, based on his second bestseller, with Venezuelan helmer/producer Eduardo Arias-Nath, who will make it his second film. Supernatural drama revolves around a woman who is admitted to a mental asylum after she confesses she can see and talk with dead people.
“El Suicidiario” will start shooting next summer in Colombia with a pan-regional cast. Arias-Nath’s Anthropolitan Films will produce.
20th Century Fox Latin America distributed “Elipsis,” Arias-Nath’s debut pic which he penned, produced, helmed and co-edited.
