Mod, Ikiru to produce ‘Ghost’

Film Factory takes international rights

BARCELONA — Mod Producciones, the producer of Alejandro Amenabar’s “Agora” and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “Biutiful,” is teaming with Spain’s Ikiru Films, Ciskul and Think Studio to produce Javier Ruiz Caldera’ “Ghost Graduation.”

A high-school phantom comedy, “Ghost’s” international rights have been acquired by Vicente Canales’ Film Factory Ent.

Ikiru produced “Lope” and co-produced “Pope Joan.”

“Ghost” turns on Modesto, a mediocre teacher with a paranormal gift, who is given the responsibility of helping five singular students — all ghosts — pass their high-school exams and finally leave school.

Script is co-penned by Cristobal Garrido and Adolfo Valor, both successful Spanish TV writers.

“Ghost” will be Ruiz Caldera’s sophomore feature. His debut, “Spanish Movie,” grossed a strong Euros 6.6 million ($9.6 million) in Spain from a late 2009 bow, and was sold by Canales to major territories such as Germany and Japan.

“‘Ghost’ has an original concept and a seductive fantasy element that will allow it to travel internationally,” Canales told Daily Variety.

“It’s a young, spirited fresh comedy that isn’t just a spoof but has singular twists,” says Edmon Roch at Ikiru Films.

Cast includes Raul Arevalo, Alexandra Jimenez and Ana Fernandez.

“Ghost” lenses from around June, and is skedded to bow year-end.
