CANNES — New World has taken Spanish rights to “Under Suspicion,” toplining Morgan Freeman, and two Summit Entertainment titles: the Bernd Eichinger-produced supernatural thriller “The Calling” and “Memento,” starring Guy Pierce.

“Our move into bigger films reflects the way the market is going in Spain. It’s clear that you have to pick up bigger titles for a film to have theatrical success,” New World managing director Jaime Comas said at Cannes.
