Film Factory Assembles ‘Wedding’ Pre-Sales

Spanish comedy books European territories

Proving it’s not just French comedies that travel, Film Factory has inked pre-sales in German-speaking Europe and Russia on Javier Ruiz Caldera’s “Three Many Weddings,” which world preems here, closing Venice Days.

Tiberius has taken all rights to Germany, Austria and German-speaking Switzerland; Daro has acquired Russian rights. Both bought Ruiz Caldera’s prior movie, “Ghost Graduation,” which Fox picked up for North and Latin America and Family Films has just bought for France.

“Weddings” was due to screened to industry and press Wednesday.

“Weddings” is shaping up as one of Spanish cinema’s biggest box office bets of 2013. Warner Bros. will release the laffer in prime box office time Dec. 6, which kicks off a bank holiday weekend.

Inma Cuesta plays a young woman who is invited to the weddings of three ex-boyfriends in the same month, plunging her into a desperate search for a marriageable man.

The first comedy from “The Impossible” producer Apaches, “Weddings” is produced by comedy specialists Think Studio and Ciskul, plus Atresmediacine, the film arm of Spain’s broadcast network group Atresmedia.

“We were delighted by the screenplay,” said “Weddings” producer Francisco Sanchez. “The global nature of weddings is all for the better.”

Film Factory will organize two private screenings of “Weddings” in Toronto. “Weddings” is also sparking remake interest, said Film Factory CEO Vicente Canales.

Both of Ruiz Caldera’s previous films, Spanish film spoof “Spanish Movie” and comedic fantasy film “Ghost Graduation,” have sold well abroad.
