Pathe Takes World Sales on New Salvatores Pic

'Invisible Boy' started shooting this month

French mini-major Pathe has taken world sales outside Italy on prominent Italo helmer Gabriele Salvatores’ new pic “The Invisible Boy,” about a 13-year-old whose growing pains prompt supernatural powers.

Boy,” on which cameras started rolling Sept. 16 in Trieste, marks a return to adolescence as a theme for Salvatores after the success of his “I’m Not Scared,” in 2003.

Pic is also the helmer’s first collaboration with expanding Rome shingle Indigo Films, run by Nicola Giuliano and Francesca Cima, who are best known as regular producers of Paolo Sorrentino’s pics, including “The Great Beauty.”

Salvatores won the 1991 foreign-lingo film Oscar with “Mediterraneo.”

The helmer is calling “Boy” “a big adventure that plays with the imaginary lives of super heroes, while seeking to touch the chords of the boy that’s in all of us.”

Italo A-listers Valeria Golino and Fabrizio Bentivoglio and Russian thesps Ksenia Rappoport and Aleksei Guskov (“The Concert”) star alongside young local first-timers Ludovico Girardello and Noa Zatta.

Italian language pic is an Italo-French co-prod between Indigo and Gaul’s Babe Films, with support from EU co-prod fund Eurimages.

Salvatores’ most recent pic is Russia-set crimer “Siberian Education,” starring John Malkovich. Wrekin Hill is expected to release it in the U.S. later this year.
