Shout! Factory Takes ‘Brazilian Western’ For North America

Crime drama adapts one of Brazil’s most celebrated rock ballads

Shout! Factory has acquired the Cinevox-sold action crime drama “Brazilian Western” (Faroeste Caboclo) for cross-platform distribution in the U.S. and Canada.

Deal takes in theatrical, exclusive digital and broadcast distribution and home entertainment. Cinevox is currently exploring opportunities at the same time to present “Brazilian Western” in select theaters.

The feature debut of Rene Sampaio, “Brazilian Western” reps a big-screen makeover of one of the most celebrated rock ballads of Brazilian Renato Russo, relating how a country boy moves to the big city in Brasilia, gets involved in organized crime, begins a love-affair with the daughter of a senator, but spins ever more out of control in his descent into crime and violence. There is a star-crossed love.

Released to expectation in Brazil by Europa Filmes, a leading local distributor, “Brazilian Western” grossed a creditable though not blockbusting $7.4 million, making it the seventh highest-grossing Brazilian release of the year.

Produced by Bianca De Felippes, Marcello Ludwig Maia and Sampaio, “Brazilian Western” stars Fabrício Boliveira, Isis Valverde, Felipe Abib, Antonio Calloni, Cesar Troncoso, Marcos Paulo and Flavio Bauraqui.
