Warner options Argentine ‘Boyfriend’

Studio eyes U.S. remake for hit comedy

Warner Bros. Pictures has optioned the U.S. remake rights for Argentinean comedy “A Boyfriend for My Wife.”

Deal was negotiated by Alejandro Cacetta of Disney-backed Patagonik Film Group, which produced the film, and Guido Rud of Buenos Aires-based FilmSharks Intl., which has sold the pic to 17 territories.

“Boyfriend,” starring Adrian Suar and Valeria Bertuccelli, is about a husband who tries to get his wife to fall in love with another man so he can leave her. Pablo Solarz penned the script.

Movie was the second best box office earner in Argentina last year, with 1.5 million ticket sales, behind “Kung Fu Panda” at 1.55 million.
