Carmen picks up ‘Gang’

Adding to its trove of mainstream Spanish movies — “Unit 7,” “I Want You,” “Three Steps Above Heaven” — Russia’s Carmen Films has moved to buy Fernando Colomo’s period comedy “Picasso’s Gang” from Madrid-based sales agent Imagina Intl. Sales.

Deal went down at Berlin’s European Film Market.

Move comes after “I Want You,” also sold by Imagina, scored $6.1 million in Russia, a standout result for a Spanish-language film.

Inspired by the real-life 1911 theft of the Mona Lisa from the Louvre, comedy portrays Picasso’s marginal involvement in the robbery.
