AFM: FilmSharks International Signs on to Hawk Nomad’s Sci-Fi Slate (EXCLUSIVE)

Pact launches with $20 million “Remora,” which will be heavy on vfx.

Argentine shingle Nomad VFX and Guido Rud’s sales-financing company FilmSharks Intl. have entered a strategic partnership for the latter to handle worldwide sales of Nomad’s upcoming English-language sci-fi/fantasy thrillers.

Pact launches with $20 million “Remora,” which is slated for inhouse CGI production in Buenos Aires next year.

“It will have the look and feel of a $100 million movie,” said Nomad CEO Fernando Sirianni, who is targeting its release by the third or fourth quarter of 2015. Talks are under way with U.S. studios to board the projects.

Penned by top sci-fi Argentine scribe Andres Gelos, “Remora” is set on a doomed planet whose inhabitants struggle to escape an icy death.

A second project, set for a later production date, is Gelos’ post-apocalyptic “Underland,” where survivors trapped beneath the earth’s crust find out that the surface is not as uninhabitable as they have been led to believe.

Nomax VFX’s credits include this year’s Argentine box office hit “Corazon de Leon.” Sirianni executive produced Lucia Puenzo’s transgender drama “XXY,” a 2007 Cannes Critics’ Week winner.

Buenos Aires-based FilmSharks Intl. has been selling Spanish- and English-language pics, centering on local hits with strong international appeal. Its broad slate includes Peru’s first 3D toon pic “Rodencia and the Princess’ Tooth” and Adrian Caetano’s femme assassin thriller “Evil Woman.”
