Fendrik, Puenzo team on ‘Smoke Men’

Project is set up at Historias Cinematograficas

Two of Latin America’s striking directorial talents, Argentina’s Pablo Fendrik and Lucia Puenzo, have teamed to write suspenser “Hombres de humo” (Smoke Men) with Fendrik attached to direct.

One of the standout projects at Paris Project, a three-day film financing forum that wrapped Wednesday, “Men” is set up at Historias Cinematograficas, the Buenos Aires shingle of Lucia’s father, director-producer Luis Puenzo.

Fendrik, who broke through to recognition with Cannes Critics’ Week players “The Mugger” and “Blood Appears,” aims to shoot “Smoke Men” late 2011.

Lucia Puenzo, whose directorial debut “XXY” won the Cannes Critics’ Week Grand Prix, will produce.

Historias aims to structure “Men” as an Argentine-European co-production, Fendrik said in Paris. Historias has a first-look co-production deal with Spain’s Wanda Films.

Set in a city outside Buenos Aires, “Men” begins with a driver who’s in Argentina’s worst-ever multiple pileup and seizes the opportunity to murder the woman in his passenger seat.
