Constantin grabs indie titles

'Freelancers,' 'Leatherface,' 'Havana Heat' among acquisitions

German distribs are stocking up on international indie titles after a long drought.

Leading Teutonic producer-distrib Constantin Film added a slew of new titles to its shopping cart, including Inferno’s crime drama feature “Freelancers,” directed by Jesse Terrero and starring Robert De Niro and Forest Whitaker; Nu Image’s “Leatherface 3D” (aka “Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D”); Tayrona Entertainment’s “Havana Heat”; and, from IM Global, BBC Earth’s wildlife documentary “Enchanted Kingdom 3D” and “Hurricane 3D.”

Constantin’s latest acquisitions follow the previously announced pickups of Gavin Hood’s “Ender’s Game” and Taylor Hackford’s “Parker,” starring Jason Statham.

Martin Moszkowicz, Constantin’s head of film and TV, described this year’s Cannes film market as “the best in recent memory — and the most successful sales market in our company’s history. It goes to show that our industry is healthy so long as the product is right.”

Constantin saw brisk business for its own titles, including “Pompeii,” “Resident Evil 5,” “Tarzan” and “The Mortal Instruments.”

Meanwhile, Stuttgart-based Camino Filmverleih nabbed theatrical and video rights for Germany and Austria to “Sarah’s Key” from Atlas Film + Medien.
