Titan, Total do pix combo mambo

Deal inked at Rio Film Festival

MIAMI — Two of Latin America’s most energetic indie pic production companies, Mexico’s Titan Producciones and Brazil’s Total Filmes, have inked to develop and jointly produce one of the first Brazilian-Mexican pic co-productions in recent years.

The untitled movie is skedded to shoot late next year and feature above-the-line talent from both countries, says Titan topper, producer Mathias Ehrenberg.

Ehrenberg adds that Total and Titan are discussing several storylines. A director has yet to be attached.

“Titan and Total have very similar profiles in their national industries,” says Total partner Iafa Britz. “What we’re aiming to do is to develop a longer term co-production relation.”

Deal was inked at the Rio Film Festival, which ran Sept. 27-Oct. 8.

Both Titan and Total have distrib deals in place with Fox, and both have international ambitions.

Titan is prepping “The Cannibal’s Daughter,” the second feature from helmer Antonio Serrano (“Sex Shame & Tears”) and “Life Kills.”

Total is lensing “Papa, Rua Alguem 5555,” starring F. Murray Abraham and Charlton Heston, a co-production with Italy’s Gam Filmes and Hungary’s Focus Films.

In other co-productions, Total is developing “O Velho Marinero,” based on a novel by Jorge Amado with a script by Frank Pierson, in partnership with Warner Bros. and Spain’s Escima.
