CANNES: Uncorked Prods. joins Jorge Michel Grau’s ‘Yamaha 300’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Andrew Corkin’s New York-based Uncorked Productions has boarded Miami-set thriller “Yamaha 300,” the second U.S. film from Jorge Michel Grau.

Grau’s feature debut, the Wild Bunch-sold cannibal family drama “Somos lo que hay,” is regarded as a high point of recent Latin American genre filmmaking.

Set off the coast of Miami during the ’70s-’80s cocaine boom, the Spanish- and English-language “Yamaha 300” reps the first feature from a Grau screenplay to be set up as a Mexico-U.S. co-production. Mayra Espinosa Castro, Grau’s partner at Mexico City-based Velarium Arts, is producing out of Mexico, Corkin from the United States.

“‘Yamaha 300’ is the deepest and darkest exploration I’ve done in my career. A one-way trip to the most aged of man’s passions: envy,” said Grau.

With Corkin on board, the partners are aiming for “a crossover film of large magnitude,” said Espinosa Castro.
