Aurum takes ‘Kane,’ ‘Son’

Spanish distrib buys six at Cannes

Spanish indie distrib Aurum Prods. has inked with Nu Image on the acquisition of Lionsgate vidgame adaptation “Kane & Lynch,” toplining Jamie Foxx and Bruce Willis.

Aurum, owned by Canada’s Alliance Films, also closed with Nu Image all Spanish rights to Dito Montiel’s crime thriller “Son of No One,” starring Channing Tatum and Al Pacino, at last week’s Cannes market.

Strengthening its bet on 3D pics, the distrib has nabbed “Vicky’s Big Journey,” the 3D sequel of tyke adventure “Vicky the Viking,” produced by Germany’s Constantin Films.

Released by Aurum last fall, “Vicky the Viking” grossed E3.5million ($4.5 million) in Spain, a standout overseas result for the pic in Europe.

The acquisitions continue Aurum’s Cannes buying spree, which includes Spanish rights to Summit Entertainment’s 3D swashbuckler “The Three Musketeers.”

Aurum also swooped on Spanish film distribution rights to Eduardo Chapero-Jackson’s futuristic fantasy “Verbo” and Eugenio Mira’s period thriller “Agnosia.”

“The Cannes market was weak in early going but encouraging as it advanced, when some late movie titles appeared,” said Aurum general manager Jorge Vazquez.

“A stronger dollar, which is predicted to hit parity with the Euro early 2011, is forcing us to be more cautious,” he added.

Aurum has already completed its 20-film line up for 2011 while 2012’s is well advanced.
