Lolafilms taking ‘Torrente 2’ int’l

French, German versions of smash pic could hit screens

Andres Vicente Gomez’s Lolafilms has made the first step in turning its huge local hit, James Bond parody “Torrente 2,” into an international franchise.

With $17 million and still counting at the Spanish B.O. “Torrente 2” is the highest-grossing Spanish pic ever.

Gomez is in talks with French producer Thomas Langmann (“La Petite Reine”) to co-produce a Gallic-lingo version of “Torrente” with a French director, writer and comedian playing the barrel-chested, eminently corruptible sleazebag gumshoe Torrente.

Gomez has also initiated conversations with Kinowelt Medien and Constantin Films for a German “Torrente,” and aims to co-produce Mexican, Italian and Brit versions, Gomez said at Cannes.
