Drimtim continues TV effort with ‘Crusader’

Barcelona actioner wraps

MADRID — Principal photography has wrapped on Drimtim Entertainment’s “Crusader,” a E2.5 million ($3.1 million) made-for-TV actioner starring Andrew McCarthy, Michael York and Bo Derek.

“Crusader” is the Barcelona-based production company’s third English-lingo TV actioner. It is helmed by Bryan Goeres and produced by Manuel Corbi, who had the same roles on its first two pics, “Face of Terror” with Rick Schroeder and Eric Balfour and “Art Heist,” which toplined William Baldwin and Ellen Pompeo.

The three pics combine U.S. cast and crew with a mainstream genre, local stars, the backdrop of Barcelona and convincing action scenes.

Spain has made film noirs since the 1940s, but actioners are rare.

“Crusader,” about an American freelance journalist who discovers information that can alter communications, is aimed at the international market. Sony Pictures Television Intl. has closed international rights on “Terror” and “Heist.”

Spanish commercial net Antena 3 and regional pubcaster Televiso de Catalunya (TVC) also have committed to “Crusader” in exchange for distrib rights in all of Spain and Catalonia, respectively.

“In Spain, we can make scores of TV movies at $500,000, or 10 TV movies at higher budgets that are sellable worldwide and create an industry,” Corbi said.

“Crusader” will be ready for delivery at Mip TV in 2005.
