Cannes: ANA Media Takes ‘Tension’ Remake Rights (EXCLUSIVE)

Spanish romcom ’like Woody Allen at the speed of ‘Mission: Impossible’

In a deal with FilmSharks, Scott Einbinder’s Los Angeles-based ANA Media has acquired English-language remake rights to Spain’s “Unresolved Sexual Tension.”

Produced by Santiago Segura, the director-star of blockbuster saga “Torrente,” “Tension” scored €2.1 million ($2.8 million) in Spain for Paramount, and sold worldwide for FilmSharks, performing well in Russia and other key territories, said its founder Guido Rud.

Helmed by Miguel Angel Lamata (“Una de zombies,” “Isi Disi”), it turns on a university teacher’s attempts to win back his old flame aided by a completely unscrupulous student.

Segura and producing partner Maria Luisa Gutierrez will serve as executive producers on the remake.
