DeAPlaneta handling int’l sales on ‘Three-60’

Spanish banner teams on thriller from Alejandro Ezcurdia

DeAPlaneta Intl. has boarded “Three-60,” a thriller from first-time director Alejandro Ezcurdia that marks a collaboration of some of the most successful — and weightiest — players in the Spanish film business.

The Spain-based sales company will rep international rights.

Bowfinger Intl. Pics, whose credits include Santiago Segura’s 2011 comedy blockbuster “Torrente 4: Lethal Crisis,” will produce with Antena 3 Films, the top Spanish producer at Spain’s 2011 box office whose current slate includes Nacho Vigalondo’s Wild Bunch-sold “Windows,” with Elijah Wood.

Pic will be distributed in Spain by Warner Bros.

“Three-60’s” script is written by Luis Berdejo, who directed Kevin Costner in “The New Daughter” and co-wrote “REC” and “REC3: Genesis,” plus “Painless,” critically acclaimed at Toronto and Sitges this year.

Co-starring Geraldine Chaplin and Joaquim de Almeida, “Three-60” turns on a young surfer (Raul Merida) who stumbles on mysterious photos that set him off on the trail of a sinister commercial cartel.

The thriller is currently filming in and around San Sebastian.

Already shopping “The Body,” from “The Orphanage” producers Rodar y Rodar, which world-preemed as the opening-night film at last month’s Sitges Festival, DeAPlaneta has a second new pickup, Spaniard Carlos Theron’s “Poker Face,” with Julian Villagran (“Extraterrestre”). The crime caper movie scored a solid E1.1 million ($1.4 million) at the Spanish box office from a July bow by indie distrib Emon.
