Toronto: ‘No Kids’ Sells, Engenders Remake Deals (EXCLUSIVE)

Disney, Toronto-backed comedy a sleeper hit in Argentina

Ariel Winograd’s “No Kids,” the latest comedy from Argentina’s Disney-backed Patagonik and Tornasol (“The Secret in Their Eyes”), has closed a North America sale to HBO Films.

As announced at Cannes, Buena Vista Intl. has acquired most of South America plus Latin American TV/VOD rights.

The Disney-distribbed “No Kids” has sold about 500,000 admissions in Argentina, said Guido Rud at FilmSharks Intl., which is handling world sales.

“No Kids” has sold to Brazil’s Paris Filmes, and has also closed deals in Mexico (Corazon Films), Greece (Tanwee), Chile Peru, Ecuador (Cinecolor), Colombia (Procinal) and Central America/Caribbean (Palmera Films). Syldavia Films released recently “No Kids” in Spain to €220,000 B.O. ($226,000).

The film has Argentine Diego Peretti (“The German Doctor”) playing a divorcee who only thinks about looking after his daughter until he meets the love of his life (Spain’s Maribel Verdu, “Y tu mama tambien”). Trouble is, she’s a fanatical advocate of childfree living.

Mainstream foreign-language movies are also becoming a format business, as Colorado Films has optioned Italy, Elisa Salinas Mexico. Per Rud, U.S. French, German, Chinese and Korean versions are under discussions.
