‘Leopard’ finds spot

Film a Spain-Colombia-Argentina co-production

Spanish production house Morena Films, the producer of pics by Oliver Stone and Carlos Saura, has boarded “Leopardo al sol” (Leopard in the Sun), the upcoming film from Argentinean helmer Adrian Caetano, whose “Buenos Aires 1977” screened in competition at Cannes last year.

Budgeted at E10 million ($13.4 million), “Leopard” is one of the most ambitious films of the year involving an Argentine director.

It will be produced by Central Films Prods’ Fernando Sulichin, Morena’s Alvaro Longoria and Muse Film Prods.’ Chris Hanley in Los Angeles.

“Leopard” is being structured as a Spain-Colombia-Argentina co-production.

Continuing its longstanding association with Sulichin and Morena, Wild Bunch has taken international rights to “Leopard” outside its producing countries.

The film turns on warring families of contrabandists in Colombia.

“It’s like ‘The Godfather’ with a dose of magic realism,” Longoria said.

Currently casting, the film will shoot from the end of the summer.

“Leopard” continues Morena’s ever-closer relation with Latin American talent and inspiration.

The production house, whose films are produced by Longoria, Juan Gordon and Pedro Uriol, has two upscale genre pics — Mexican Rodrigo Pla’s “The Zone” and Spaniard Paco Cabeza’s Argentina-set horror pic “Appeared” — in post.

“Latin America has a lot of talent, and great and different stories,” Longoria said.”
