HBO nabs rights to ‘Primos’

Spanish hit laffer to show via cabler in U.S.

HBO has acquired U.S. pay TV and VOD rights to Spaniard Daniel Sanchez Arevalo’s social comedy “Primos” (Cousinhood).

Sold by Barcelona-based sales outfit Film Factory Entertainment, pic premieres Stateside in July.

A Warner Bros. release, “Cousinhood” was the fourth-highest grossing Spanish pic of 2011, cuming an upbeat E3.5 million ($4.7 million).

Sanchez Arevalo’s third feature was produced by two of Spain’s most internationally-minded production companies, Mod Prods and Atipica Films.

Vicente Canales’ Film Factory has just extended its business relationship with Jose Antonio Felez’s Atipica, inking international sales rights on Alberto Rodriguez’s action thriller “Grupo 7” (Unit 7).

At Berlin, Film Factory is presenting buyers with a first teaser promo of “Unit 7,” which is now in post.

Writer-director Alberto Rodriguez, who broke through in 2005 with coming-of-age pic “7 Virgins,” drew on real-life events for “Unit 7.”

Film turns around a semi-official police unit battling drugs and prostitution in downtown Seville before the 1992 Intl. Expo.

Pic toplines Spain’s hottest local thesp, Mario Casas (“Three Meters Above the Sky,” “Brain Drain”), alongside Antonio de la Torre (“The Last Circus”) and Inma Cuesta (“The Sleeping Voice”).

Warner Bros. opens “Unit 7” in Spain April 4 on around 250 prints.
