Cannes: Disney Takes Latin America on ‘Not Cheating’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Sales agent Filmsharks also sales U.S. remake rights to Winograd’s ‘No Kids’

Buena Vista Intl. has acquired Latin American rights for Ariel Winograd’s “Permitidos” (That’s Not Cheating), produced by the Disney-backed Patagonik in Argentina, and his follow-up, “No Kids,” already big B.O. hit in Argentina that has sold to 45 territories.

Deal comes as “Not Cheating’s” sales agent FilmSharks Intl. has sold “No Kids” to UMedia for a U.S. remake, in a deal negotiated between FilmSharks’ Guido Rud and Iwona Sellers. Comedy follows a modern couple who joke with friends about the idea of a “One Night Pass” — one night of passion with a famous star taht would not be considered infidelity. Then the husband unexpectedly meets his “One Night Pass.”

“Permitidos,” produced by Argentina’s Tres Planos Cine, Patagonik and pay TV operator Direct TV, typifies a local comedy of manners that can on occasions blow Hollywood blockbusters out of the water in Argentina, and generate international sales.

“No Kids” has also generated five remake versions, Rud said at Cannes.
