CANNES: Apaches, Atresmedia Team for ‘Toro’ (EXCLUSIVE)

“The Impossible” producer Apaches Ent. is teaming with Spain’s Atresmedia Cine (“I Want You,” “Red Lights”), Zircocine (“Operation-E”) and Escandalo Films (“Eva”) to produce “Toro,” which looks set to raise the bar of full-on upscale action thrillers coming out of Spain.

Sold by Film Factory at Cannes, “Toro” marks director Kike Maillo’s follow-up to “Eva,” Spain’s first robot movie that was sold widely by Wild Bunch, with the Weinstein Co acquiring U.S. rights.

Written by up-and-coming scribes Fernando Navarro (“Anacleto: Secret Agent”) and Rafael Cobos (“Unit 7,” “Marshland”) “Toro” stars two of Spain’s most popular actors, Mario Casas (“Unit 7”) and Luis Tosar (“Miami Vice.”) Claudia Vega (“Eva”) co-stars.

Billed as hyper-realistic, Maillo’s sophomore pic stars Mario Casas as Toro, an ex-con going straight until his brother, who owes money to the mob, embroils him a frenetic, violent and wild escape that endangers his and his niece’s lives.

“ ‘Toro’ is character-driven action movie, rather like Jacques Audiard’s movies, mixing iconic features of Spanish culture with film noir, a story of flamenco song, a family, gangsters, betrayal,” said Apache’s Enrique Lopez-Lavigne.

Pic will contain multiple car chase scenes. It shoots from November in Andalusia, added Escandalo’s Sergi Casamitjana.

Apaches and Escandalo intend to co-produce the next two movies by Maillo.
