Warner Bros. picks up ‘The Noble Family’ for Latin America

Mexican director Gaz Alazraki helms social satire

Warner Bros. Pictures has acquired pan-Latin American rights to Mexican Gaz Alazraki’s “The Noble Family,” a social satire produced by Leonardo Zimbron for top Mexican production house Filmadora Nacional.

Deal was negotiated by Damon Bonesteel, Warner Bros. Pics senior V.P., legal and business affairs, and Zimbron and Guido Rud at FilmSharks Intl., which is handling international sales on “Noble.”

Alazraki’s directorial debut, “Noble” turns on a millionaire father who feigns bankruptcy to teach his rich kid children a lesson in humility.

Mexican vet Gonzalo Vega plays the father. Luis Gerardo Mendez (“Viento en contra”), Karla Souza (“I Brake For Gringos”) and Juan Pablo Gil (“Malaventura”) are his good-for-nothing offspring. WB will bow “Noble” in Mexico next February with upwards of 350 copies, said Rud.

“I’m delighted by the film’s contemporary, impacting high-concept, which makes it very apt for a remake, a business of large importance for our label,” he added.

A partnership of producers Avelino Rodriguez (“The Blue Room”), Marco Polo Constandse (“Sultanes del Sur”) and Zimbron, Warner Bros Pictures Mexico’s former head of local production, Filmadora Nacional’s recent production credits include Michel Franco’s Cannes Un Certain Regard winner “After Lucia” and “Carriere, 250 Meters,” a docu portrait of French screenwriter Jean-Claude Carriere.
