Warner, Mediapro link up in Spain

Deal includes upcoming Woody Allen film

Warner Bros. Entertainment Espana and Spanish production giant Mediapro have signed a distribution deal for Spain.

The agreement allows Warners to handle theatrical and DVD rights on Mediapro productions, including Woody Allen’s Barcelona summer 2007 shoot, among other future high-profile pics.

“We’ll also explore co-production possibilities,” Mediapro prexy Jaume Roures told Daily Variety.

Warner Bros. will distribute Jean-Jacques Annaud’s myth-laced comedy “Her Majestic Minor,” a European co-production shot in Spain, in which Mediapro took a minority stake last year.

The agreement also includes coming-of-age drama “Suso’s Tower,” toplining Javier Camara (“Talk to Her”), Felipe Jimenez’s gory youth comedy “Don’t Say Anything,” Pavel Giroud’s Cuba-set co-production “La edad de la peseta” and Brazilian drama “Forbidden to Forbid.”

“There’s no absolute exclusivity, but we will distribute by preference through Warners,” Roures added.

First title under the new co-production commitment could be Manuel Huerga’s “Las madres de Elna,” a drama inspired by the true story of a Swiss nurse who saved the lives of 597 babies of Republicans confined to concentration camps in Southern France after Spain’s Civil War.

Fruit of a prior one-off deal, Warners and Mediapro are now co-producing with broadcaster Antena 3’s production arm Ensueno Films the zombie comedy “Barbykiller, moriras por ella,” helmed by Miguel Marti Campoy.
