Vertice nabs Spanish rights for ‘Monk’

Pact marks further step in Vertice's relationship with prodco Morena

Indie film distrib Vertice Cine has acquired Spanish theatrical and home entertainment rights to Dominik Moll’s 18th Century-set thriller “The Monk,” starring Gallic thesp Vincent Cassel.

Based on Matthew G. Lewis’ gothic novel, “Monk” narrates the rise and tragic downfall of a Spanish capuchin monk, Ambrosio. Deborah Francois, Josephine Japy, Sergi Lopez and Catherine Monchet topline the pic which is structured as a France-Spain co-production and produced by Paris-based shingle Diaphana Films alongside Spain’s Morena Films and Estrategia Audiovisual.

“Monk’s” distribution pact marks a further step in Vertice Cine’s close relationship with prodco Morena, whose international co-productions “Bon Appetit” and “Neon Flesh” were released by Vertice last year in Spain. A regular partner on European projects, often from France, Morena’s 2011 co-production slate includes Laurent Tirard’s “Asterix and Obelix: God Save Britannia,” and Benoit Jacquot’s French Revolution drama “Les Adieux a la reine,” starring Diane Kruger.

Vertice plans to launch “Monk” this fall, after pic premieres in Spain at the upcoming San Sebastian fest’s Zabaltegi-Specials sidebar.
