Fox goes Latin with ‘Mujeres’

First feature for helmer-scribe Bueno

MEXICO CITY — Twentieth Century Fox Films has acquired Latin American rights to local indie pic “7 mujeres, un homosexual y Carlos” (7 Women, a Homosexual and Carlos).

Romantic comedy is the first feature for helmer Rene Bueno, who also penned the screenplay. The $1 million pic was filmed in Tijuana in September 2002. Helmer is a native of Tijuana and has previously worked on musicvideos and features in the U.S.

Pic stars Adriana Fonseca, Luis Felipe Tovar, Mauricio Ochmann, Ninel Conde and Rogelio Guerra.

“7 Mujeres” will bow in Mexico on March 19, a month later than originally planned, to avoid Oscar season, co-producer Marissa Gomez said. Film’s other co-producer is Omar Veytia, who has line produced several U.S. pics shot in Mexico.

Unlike most recent indie productions here, “7 mujeres” relied on private financing and has no money from Mexico’s national film financing organization, the National Film Institute (Imcine).

Pic will bow with 200 copies, a large number for an indie film in Mexico. Indies typically exhibit half that number, while large Hollywood film releases reach 300 prints.

According to Gomez, Fox has also reserved first-look rights for possible U.S. distribution.
