DeAPlaneta in ‘Dangerous’ territory

Cage pic is a remake of 1999 Thai thriller

Spanish distributor DeAPlaneta has picked up all Spanish rights to the Nicolas Cage gangster thriller “Bangkok Dangerous,” sold by Initial Entertainment Group.

“Dangerous” is the Hollywood remake of a 1999 Thai pic of the same title, helmed, like the original, by Hong Kong-born brothers Oxide and Danny Pang.

Deal was closed at May’s Cannes market, where DeAPlaneta’s buying team was aggressive, despite the March departure of former exec prexy Alvaro Zapata.

DeAPlaneta’s managing director Gonzalo Martin and head of acquisitions Yolanda del Val also inked Spanish rights with Summit Entertainment on thriller “P2,” about a woman stranded in a parking garage. From U.K.’s Odyssey Entertainment, they took romantic comedy “Easy Virtue,” helmed by Stephan Elliott (“Priscilla, Queen of the Desert”).

In other news, the Barcelona-based distribution and production company, one of the biggest buyers in Spain, picked up the Lucy Liu heist thriller “Devil to Pay” and vampire horror feature “Daybreakers,” helmed by Australian filmmakers Peter and Michael Spierig. Both pics are sold by Lionsgate Intl.
