Don Ranvaud’s production outfit Buena Onda is developing the first feature from Philippe Barcinski, one of the directors of Brazilian TV series “City of Men.”
Pic, a drama called “Not by Chance,” will be sold internationally by Lumina Films, the sales arm of the Intl. Film Collective group of companies.
Pic is the story of three control-obsessed characters — a traffic supervisor, a snooker player and a bingo house employee — who lose people they love.
Brazilian pic will star Fernando Eiras, Mariana Ximenes, Caio Blat, Carolina Sa, Caco Ciocler, Claudia Abreu, Marilia Pera, Pedro Paulo Rangel and Paulo Cesar Pereio.
The Barcinski-directed episode of “Men” was the highest-rated program of the last series.
