Argentina’s Pablo Fendrik is directing with shooting underway in Argentina. Bernal plays a man who emerges from the Argentinean rainforest to rescue the kidnapped daughter (Braga) of a poor farmer killed by mercenaries who seized his property.
Garcia Bernal starred in Participant’s Chilean drama “No.”
“After our terrific experience on ‘No,’ we’re excited to be reuniting with Gael and Canana for our first Participant PanAmerica film and to be expanding our footprint into this important segment of the global marketplace,” Participant CEO JimBerk said in a statement.
Co-producers are Magma Cine (Argentina), Bananeira Filmes (Brazil) and Manny Films (France). Magma’s Argentinian partners are Aleph Media and Telefe Intl. BAC Films is handling international sales outside North America and Latin America, and will introduce the project at Cannes.
