Perez backs two pix

Producer teams with Mexican Ehrenberg on projects

MADRID — Spanish producer Antonio Perez’s Maestranza Films is teaming with Mexican producer Matthias Ehrenberg on two feature film projects: “Rosario Tijeras,” Emilio Maille’s adaptation of a bestselling Colombian novel by Jorge Franco Ramos; and “Havana Blues,” Benito Zambrano’s long-awaited follow-up to his acclaimed directorial deb, “Solos” (Alone), which was also produced by Maestranza.

The co-production agreement between Perez and Ehrenberg, who recently launched a new banner, Mano Production, will see “Rosario” roll late October in Medillin, Colombia. One of the high profile pics to come out of Latin America this year, the drama “Rosario” turns on a 19-year-old sicaria,” a femme assassin, who was abused as a child. The femme lede is currently being cast, Perez told Daily Variety. Pic is co-produced with a third partner, Clara Maria Ochoa’s Colombia-based CMO Producciones, from a screenplay by Argentine scribe Marcelo Figueras (“Kamchatka,” “Plata quemada”).

Ehrenberg beat out stiff competition to buy the film rights to “Rosario.” “Havana Blues” will shoot in Havana from early 2004.
