Sony nabs Amodeo’s ‘Bambi?’ for Spain

Rodar y Rodar-produced comedy rolls Feb. 4 in Seville

MADRID

Sony Pictures Releasing de Espana has taken Spanish theatrical rights to Santi Amodeo’s kidnap comedy “Who Killed Bambi?,” the latest from “The Orphanage” producer Rodar y Rodar.

Madrid-based Imagina Intl. has picked up international sales.

“Bambi?” is Amodeo’s first comedy after two quirky mid-decade dramas, “Astronauts” and “Doghead.” It shoots in Seville for seven weeks, rolling Monday.

Cast includes Quim Gutierrez (“Cousinhood”), Ernesto Alterio (“Clandestine Childhood”), Julian Villagran (“Unit 7”), Enrico Vecchi (“Astronauts”), Clara Lago (“The End”), Ursula Corbero (“XP 3D”) and Carmina Barrios (“Carmina o revienta”).

“Bambi?” is produced by Rodar’s Joaquin Padro and Mar Targarona, known for psychological thrillers such as Juan Antonio Bayona’s “The Orphanage,” the Universal Pictures Intl.-co-produced “Julia’s Eyes” and “The Body,” which Sony released in Spain. “The Body” has grossed $7.8 million, and counting, a standout result.

Sony pay TV channel AXN, nationwide pubcaster TVE and Catalan state channel TVC have acquired Spanish rights to “Bambi?” The theatrical release in Spain is scheduled for fall.
