Cannes: BVI Takes Latin America on ‘No Kids’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Produced by Patagonik and Tornasol, romcom one of the awaited Argentine bows of 2015.

CANNES — Buena Vista Intl. has taken all Latin American  rights to “No Kids” (“Sin Hijos”), a big 2015 play for Argentine auds teaming Patagonik and Spain’s Tornasol Films producers of the highest-grossing Argentine movies at hometurf theaters in 2008 (“The Boyfriend of My Wife”) 2009 (“The Secret of Their Eyes”), 2010 (“Just Like Me”) and 2012 (“2 + 2”).

Director of “My First Wedding,” Guido Rud’s FilmSharks Intl., the sales agent on multiple films by the Disney-backed Patagonik, will bring “No Kids” onto the international market at Cannes.”

Another comedy, like Patagonik’s “Boyfriend,””2 +2” and “Me,” “No Kids” bows May 14 at Argentine wickets. Pairing Maribel Verdu, who starred in Alfonso Cuaron’s “Y a tu mama tambien,” and Diego Peretti, the father in Lucia Puenzo’s “The German Doctor,” a Samuel Goldwyn Films U.S. pick-up.

Peretti plays a man who, four years after separating from his wife, only thinks about looking after his daughter, imtil he meets the love of his life (Verdu). Trouble us, she’s a fanatical member of a No Kids movement for childfree living.

“I believe this high-concept crossover film will travel worldwide and also became a major Hollywood and int’l remake,” Rud said.

Also Patagonik-produced and sold by FilmSharks Martin Piroyasky’s “Volley,” which sold over 100,000 admissions in Argentina, has been acquired for U.S. distribution by HBO.
