Bolivar novel gets bigscreen break

Anthropolitan Films to produce 'El Suicidiario'

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.
