Miguel Angel Faura’s Roxbury Pictures has boarded Juan Carlos Medina’s psychological thriller “Insensibles” (Painless).

Project’s originators, Antoine Simkine’s Les Films d’Antoine and Francois Cognard’s Tobina Film, will produce from France.

Barcelona-based Roxbury lead produces, putting up 60% of pic’s €3.2 million ($4.5 million) budget. Portugal’s Fado Filmes has a 10% participation and the French co-producers are financing the rest, Faura said at the Sitges Festival.

A Contracorriente has Spanish theatrical distribution rights. Wild Bunch has home entertainment rights in France, and Canal Plus and Cine Cinema share French pay TV rights.
