Hendler attached to Mardones’ ‘Brethren’

Parox preps 'Gen Mishima' movie spin-off

GUADALAJARA, Mexico — Uruguayan thesp Daniel Hendler, who won a Berlin Silver Bear for “Lost Embrace,” is attached to star in Chilean drama “Separated Brethren.”

“Brethren,” which is the directorial debut of producer-turned-helmer Andres Mardones (“El Baile de la Victoria,” “Rabia”), is one of four movies now set up at Sergio Gandara’s Parox, a top Chilean TV production house.

Hendler plays Daniel, a 33-year-old pastor dispatched to an evangelical church in Chile, which he attended as a child. His attempts at modernization, passion for the woman he always loved and consuming guilt all contribute to the impending tragedy.

Penned by Francisco Ortega (“Se arrienda”), “Brethren” is skedded to roll winter 2013.

Aiming to produce 36 hours of fiction this year — mostly TV series like “El Reemplazante” — Gandara is exploiting Chile’s growing film-TV synergies.

Gandara and former Endeavor agent-turned-producer Sergio Aguero are developing an English-language remake of the Parox-produced cult TV series “Gen Mishima” with vet showrunner Ken Sanzel (“Numbers,” “The 2-2”), Gandara said at Mexico’s Guadalajara festival.

Gandara is also working on a movie spin-off of the dystopian thriller “Gen Maoa,” written by “Mishima” scribe Enrique Videla.

Gandara said, “Just making films in Chile is highly complex. TV production is larger scale and its budgets practically guaranteed, allowing companies to tackle film projects on a more industrial level.”

Parox is also putting up equity and services on Spaniard Isabel Aiguavives’ “El Arbol magnetico,” co-produced by Spain’s Dos Treinta y Cinco, and on Italian Vincenzo Marra’s fourth fiction feature “La Prima Luce.”
