Sony acquires ‘Fin’ in Spain

Chiller penned by Guerricaechevarria, Sanchez

Sony Pictures Releasing Espana has acquired Spanish theatrical and DVD/VOD rights to “Fin” (The End).

A mountain log cabin chiller with supernatural elements, “End” is penned by “Cell 211” scribe Jorge Guerricaechevarria and Sergio G. Sanchez (“The Orphanage”).

Now in post-production, it is also a high-profile 2012 example of a Spanish film which – given the weakness of Spain’s DVD and pay TV markets – is designed to move into profit principally off theatrical and international. With its E5 million ($6.6 million) budget, film sports elevated production values from first-time helmer Jorge Torregrossa.

“End” is produced by three of Spain’s top international outfits: Apaches Entertainment (“The Impossible,” “Intruders”), Mod Producciones (“Agora,” “Biutiful”) and Antena 3 Films (“You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger,” “Red Lights”), the film division of broadcast network Antena 3.

Vicente Canales’ Film Factory Entertainment was tapped by the producers before Toronto 2011 to bring it onto the international market.

The producers are now tying down distribution in Spain with a studio.

Maribel Verdu (“Pan’s Labyrinth”), Daniel Grao (“Julia’s Eyes”) and Clara Lago (“Primos”) star.

Sony will release “End” in late summer, prime box office real estate in Spain.
