Mexico’s Dos Corazones Unveils Ambitious, Faith-Based Slate

Seeking to tap the burgeoning faith-based market worldwide, Mexican film and TV company Dos Corazones is producing a slew of English-language pics with $10 million to $50 million budgets, and TV projects in the $5 million to $10 million range.

Backed by private equity sources out of Mexico, Dos Corazones is led by CEO-founder Pablo Jose Barroso, whose credits include the 2012 $12 million religious war epic “For Greater Glory: The True Story of Cristiada,” above, starring Andy Garcia, Eva Longoria and Oscar Isaac, one of the most expensive pics to come out of Mexico.

Producing partner Claudia Nemer serves as COO.

“We believe there is an underserved market for content touting strong values so our ambition is to help fill this void in the marketplace and deliver the highest-quality movies and TV product to audiences worldwide,” said Barroso.

Dos Corazones will develop, finance and produce two to four pics a year and one to two television skeins. First out the gate are World War II-set feature toon “Max & Me” and period live-action pic “Maccabees.” Dos Corazones’ first TV skein “The Cave” is based on near-death experiences.

Penned by veteran animation writer Bruce Morris, “Max & Me” is set against the Nazi invasion of Poland during World War II and is helmed by Donovan Cook with animation house IMagica and features the voice talent of David Henrie, Ashley Greene, Neal McDonough and Hector Elizondo.

“Maccabees” recounts the Jewish revolt against the Greek-Syrians, led by Judah Maccabee in 166 BC.
