Full House seals deals at Berlin

'7 Days,' '11 Flowers' rack up worldwide sales

Following its global outlook, Paris-based Full House’s first productions, “7 Days in Havana” and “11 Flowers,” have started to rack up worldwide sales as well.

Repped by Wild Bunch, and produced by Spain’s Morena Films, Full House and Havana Club Intl., omnibus feature “Havana” has pre-sold to 35-plus territories.

These include Italy (BIM Distribuzione), U.K. (Soda Pictures), Japan (Comstock) and CIS (CP Digital).

Rezo releases “Havana” in France, while Golem has the pic in Spain; both aim to open before summer, Domehri said.

New York’s First Run Features has acquired theatrical and DVD/VOD rights to the Films Distribution-sold coming-of-age tale “11 Flowers” from China’s Wang Xiaoshuai (“Chongking Blues”), the first official France-China co-production. U.S. release is skedded for around late 2012.

Australia’s Palace Films, Benelux’s Imagine, Israel’s New Cinema and Austria’s Thim Film are additional buyers. Haut et Court handles French distribution.

Full House was founded in 2009 by Didar Domehri, a former Films Distribution sales head; Laurent Baudens, formerly of Wild Bunch; and Gael Nouaille, who’s still at Wild Bunch. The trio have knowledge of the international market, plus talent and production connections few young shingles can match.

“The challenge is to secure financing. With a good script and director, and a bit of creativity, it is usually possible,” said Baudens.

A challenge often yields distinctive results.

On “7 Days in Havana,” a multi-part fictional portait of contempo Cuba, Morena and Full House had to service and cashflow the needs in Cuba of seven directors from different countries: Benicio del Toro, Pablo Trapero, Juan Carlos Tabio, Laurent Cantet, Elia Suleiman, Gaspar Noe and Julio Medem.

Full House is ready to to roll on the €13 million-15 million ($17 million-$20 million) Third Reich vampire pic “I Am Legion,” from a Richard Stanley script. Nacho Cerda (“Abandoned”) directs. “Legion” is now out to A list European and American actors, Domehri said.

Pierre Spengler’s U.K. shingle Clubdeal will co-produce “Legion” with Full House and Spain’s Apaches (“Intruders,” “The Impossible”).

Luxembourg’s Red Lion (“Dust”) is co-producing Full House’s first French production, crime thriller “La Confrerie des larmes,” from Jean Baptiste Andrea (“Dead End,” “The Big Nothing”). It is skedded to roll in September, said Domehri.

“Confrerie’s” Luxembourg financing and co-production deal was put through in association with Paris-based consultancy Backup Films.
