Cineclick adds to its Cannes slate

Sales outfit picks up films from Australia, Argentina

Korean sales company Cineclick Asia expanded its slate of films to be presented at Cannes by picking up pictures from Argentina and Australia.

The company, which was recently sold to Korean mini-conglom Fantom Entertainment, has moved quickly to use financial strength of new owner to diversify its lineup.

It will rep “Lucky Miles,” an Oz comedy about cultural differences helmed by Michael James Rowland. Pic preemed at the Adelaide fest and will receive its international bow in the Cannes Market.

Cineclick is co-financing and selling the latest film by Pablo Trapero (“Rolling Family,” “El Bonaerense”). With the working title of “Misencounter,” pic is the tale of a woman who accidentally kills her lover and tries to raise her son behind prison bars. Delivery is skedded for early 2008.

The company’s earlier attempt at diversification, the oft-delayed “Opium War,” helmed by another Cannes favorite, Siddiq Barmak, will start lensing Monday in Afghanistan. Story features an encounter between an Afghan family living among Russian tanks and U.S. soldiers of different ethnicities.

Cineclick, which Suh Young-joo continues to lead after the takeover, also reps Cannes competition film “Breath,” by Korean arthouse bad boy Kim Ki-duk.
