Spanish duo team for ‘Arritmia’

Pic's international cast will be announced shortly

Spanish producer Iker Monfort has teamed with one of Spain’s hottest local helmers, Vicente Penarrocha, to produce romantic actioner “Arritmia.”

“Arritmia” narrates a love story between a prisoner who escapes from Guantanamo jailhouse and feels a passionate attraction to a Cuban girl.

Monfort’s label Monfort Producciones is framing the $6.4 million pic as a Spanish-U.K. co-production. Spanish partners are Jose Herrero and Suki Films.

Eight-week shoot begins in September, rolling in Havana and Spain. An international cast will be announced shortly.

Monfort Prods. has a majority stake in Juan Solanas’ Un Certain Regard player “Northeast,” a drama about a woman (played by Carole Bouquet) who travels to northern Argentina to adopt a child (see review page 16).

San Sebastian-born producer Monfort founded Monfort Prods. last summer after working as head of international at Francisco Ramos’s Alquimia Cinema.
