It's taken sales rights to Gout's World Cup soccer-set thriller

Gaul’s Kinology has nabbed international sales rights to Mexican helmer-scribe Everardo Valerio Gout’s psychological thriller “Days of Grace” starring Carlos Bardem and Tenoch Huerta.

Set in Mexico City, “Days of Grace” weaves together three kidnappings that take place during the soccer World Cup tournaments in 2002, ’06 and ’10. Story unfolds through this eyes of a cop, a victim and the wife of a victim.

Paris-based ARP Selection’s Michele and Laurent Petin are producing with Everardo and Leopoldo Valerio Gout’s Casa B Prods. Ozcar Ramirez (“Morenita”) is co-producing.

“This film is a tale about the human cost of kidnapping and corruption in the violent streets of Mexico City, and it’s told with a stark visual and narrative style,” said Kinology’s founder Gregoire Melin.

Melin, along with his new team, Gaelle Mareschi and Camille Moreau, is showing a promo reel at the European Film Market.

Currently in post-production, the pic’s skedded for delivery in May.

Melin also has been following the rising stars of Spain’s genre cinema, Rodrigo Cortes and Adrian Guerra, the duo behind Ryan Reynolds starrer “Buried” and “Emergo,” both of which Kinology sells worldwide, except for the U.S.

Launched in 2008, Kinology is repping a string of high-profile, English-language films, notably Robert Pattinson starrer “Cosmopolis” and sci-fi romance “Upside Down,” toplining Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess.

The outfit’s eclectic Berlin slate also boasts “Living Is Better Than Dying,” helmer Pascal Chaumeil’s follow-up to “Heartbreaker,” and “Hurricane,” a 3D docu directed by Andy Byatt (“Blue Planet”) and Cyril Barbancon. “Hurricane” already has been sold in 10 territories.
