AFM: Mexican Director Gout Sets English-Language Thriller (EXCLUSIVE)

Everardo Gout, a leading light of Mexican genre cinema whose slick debut “Days of Grace” has earned a near-cult status since its midnight screening premiere  at Cannes, is set to make his sophomore outing with “Again,” an English-language thriller turning on the murder of a rock star.

Gout, a former musicvid and commercials helmer, will be reteaming with his “Days of Grace” cinematographer, Luis David Sansans, whose credits include “Narcos,” “Escobar: Paradise Lost” with Benicio Del Toro and “Romeo + Juliette.”

“Again” is being produced by Yoel Dahan and Yohan Baiada for Les Enfants Terribles and Leopoldo Gout. Wild Bunch-owned sales banner Versatile is handling international sales and co-producing the movie.

Structured in four 20-minute takes, “Again” chronicles events leading up to the murder of a rock idol through the eyes of four characters — a photographer, the stars’ manager, a fame-seeking groupie and the band’s star singer.

Baiada said Gout is aiming to enlist the popular musicians and bands who worked on “Days of Grace” to create an original soundtrack.

” ‘Again’ is a film about fame, the fascination rock stars trigger and the loneliness they feel, about the mythology surrounding singers who die on stage,” said Dahan.

Pic is skedded to start shooting during the first quarter of 2016 for a delivery in the spring.
