Cannes: Loco Films Enlists for ‘Battle’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Newly launched Paris-based outfit Loco Films has acquired international sales to Sergey Mokritskiy’s “The Battle for Sevastopol,” a WWII-set drama that topped the Russian B.O. this year.

Loco Films was just created by former Rezo Films’ boss Laurent Danielou in partnership with Enrique Gonzalez Kuhn, who previously ran acquisitions at Alta Films.

With a big budget of $20 million, the Russian/Ukrainian co-production chronicles the epic journey of Ludmila Pavlichenko, a Russian female sniper nicknamed “Lady Death.”

Pavlichenko reportedly killed 300 people in one month and was enlisted by Soviet ruler Joseph Stalin in 1942 to convince the Americans to get involved in the war.

“The Battle for Sevastopol” was produced by Ukraine’s Kinorob and Russia’s New People Film Co.
