Pic producer for Argentina

Bossi, Buscarini kick off Pampa with Filmax

Pablo Bossi, founder and former prexy of Disney-backed Patagonik Film Group, has launched Pampa Films in Argentina with helmer-producer Juan Pablo Buscarini (“The Hairy Tooth Fairy”) and Spain’s Filmax Entertainment.

Bossi is prexy, while second-in-command is Filmax chairman Julio Fernandez; Bucarini is director and executive producer. Equity stakes of the partners were not disclosed.

On the seven-pic slate for 2007 is “La Senal,” a project Argentine helmer-scribe Eduardo Mignogna (“The Escape”) had in pre-production when he died Oct. 6. Argentine thesp Ricardo Darin (“Nine Queens”) will make his directing debut.

The other projects are the animated movie “Perez 2 — La verdadera historia,” sequel to Patagonik-produced “Tooth Fairy”; Florencia Pena’s debut comedy “Enloqueciendonos”; Raul Rodriguez Peila’s historical drama “Azucena. 375 Dias”; adventure tale “El Inventor de juegos”; fantasy pic “Hadas y dragones”; and Federico Cueva’s fantasy thriller “Lazarus.”

The outfit will have strong distribution potential thanks to its partnership with Filmax, which has a presence in Asia, Europe and North America, Bossi said.

Filmax is best known for English-language chillers or psychological thrillers such as Jaume Balaguero’s “Darkness” and Brad Anderson’s upcoming “Trans-Siberian.”

Pampa Films marks Filmax’s first shareholding in a Latin American company.
