Samuel Goldwyn Films has picked up U.S. rights to “There Be Dragons,” Roland Joffe’s film about a journo looking into the link between his father and the founder of Opus Dei.
Wes Bentley, Derek Jacobi, Charlie Cox (“Stardust”), Olga Kurylenko (“Quantum of Solace”), Dougray Scott and Rodrigo Santoro are among the cast of the Spanish film. Scott plays the journalist who investigates events that occurred 70 years earlier, during the Spanish Civil War.
Joffe (“The Mission”) helmed, and also produced the film with Ignacio Gomez-Sancha and Ignacio Nunez.
Goldwyn Films’ Peter Goldwyn negotiated the distribution pact with Gomez-Sancha and attorney Rob Nau on behalf of the film.
“Dragons” is set to hit theaters May 6. Film joins a Samuel Goldwyn slate that includes “The Double Hour,” “Exporting Raymond” and “The Whistleblower.”
