‘Rosario’ racks up Latam deals

Thriller gets mass international roll out

MADRID — Madrid-based producer Marina Fuentes has rolled out “Rosario Tijeras” over much of Latin America, licensing the Colombian assassin thriller to CDI for Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and Chile, to Films Sans Frontiers for Venezuela, and to Ablo for Central America.

The Mexican-Colombian-Spanish co-production was also picked up by Lime Tree for South Korea and M&M for Israel. The U.K. and Russia are under negotiations.

Pic has already sold to Pretty Pictures for France, Manga Films in Spain, Casablanca for Brazil and Greece’s Prooptiki.

Set in Medellin in 1989 at the height of the drug cartels, “Rosario” toplines Colombian Flora Martinez as a traumatized prostitute and teen killer.

A hit in Colombia last year with 1.2 million ticket sales, “Rosario” bowed March 31 in Mexico to 150,000 admissions, an upbeat result for a Latin American pic.

“Rosario” is produced by Matthias Ehrenberg’s Latin American shingle Rio Negro, and Mexico’s United Angels, plus Colombia’s Dulce Compania, and Spain’s Maestranza Films.
