Versus, Kinology team on ‘Emergo’

Pic is directorial debut of Spaniard Carles Torrens

MADRID — Following their partnership on “Buried,” Adrian Guerra’s Versus Ent. and Gregoire Melin’s Kinology are teaming on another low-budget genre pic, “Emergo,” written by “Buried” director Rodrigo Cortes.

“Emergo” marks the feature directorial debut of award-winning shorts helmer Carles Torrens, yet another product of the Catalan genre school.

Toplining Kai Lennox, Michael O’Keffee, Gia Mantegna, Rick Gonzalez, Fionna Glascott and Francesc Garrido, “Emergo” turns on a team of high-tech parapsychologists who investigate anomolous phenomena in a newly-occupied apartment.

The group’s attempts to contact with the “other side” grow increasingly dangerous, nearing a point of no-return.

Cortes and Guerra take producer credits. “Emergo” is produced by Versus Ent. and financed by Versus, loans discounted against subsidies from the Spanish and Catalan ICAA and ICIC film boards, a presale to Catalan pubcaster TV3 and Spanish investors, Guerra said.

Kinology will handle international sales for the world outside Spain and the U.S., which is repped by UTA’s Independent Film Group.

Melin’s company sold “Buried” worldwide save for the U.S., handled again by UTA.

Representing some of Europe’s biggest-budgeted, highest-profile or cult hit pics – Christophe Gans’ “Fantomas” Patrice Leconte’s “The Suicide Ship,” Fin Jalmari Helander’s “Rare Exports” – Melin has a direct line to international’s most muscular buyers.

Also, said Guerra, “Kinology is the perfect match for us, a real film loving company that has brilliant marketing angles and understands how to market original films.”

“The project is as original and sounded as brand new as when Rodrigo Cortes and Adrian Guerra brought ‘Buried’ to me,” Melin added.

Shot this August in English in Barcelona, “Emergo” will be ready for delivery March 2011.
