AFM: Dreamcatchers Presents ‘The Debt’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Barney Elliott’s political thriller rolls of New Hampshire Audience Award, best film at Woodstock

Dreamcatchers is bringing onto the market at AFM the re-edited version of Barney Elliott’s political thriller “The Debt.”

Move comes as Dreamcatchers, a Madrid-based English-language film sales-financing house, introduces buyers to 3D animated feature “Ozzy,” which has pre-sold Poland (Polsat), Turkey/Greece (Tanweer), Portugal (Outsider) and the Middle East (ECS).

The Debt” stars Stephen Dorff,  Alberto Ammann (“Thesis on a Homicide”), Carlos Bardem (“Cell 211) and David Strathairn, and is directed by Peru-based U.S.-born director Elliott. “The Debt” (aka “Oliver’s Deal”) stars Dorff as a hedge-fund honcho putting through the deal of a lifetime — the redemption of a long-forgotten billion-dollar debt owed by the Peruvian government to its citizens. The quick buck soon turns into a nightmare.

“ ‘The Debt’ is now very relevant as Peru builds for elections in April and the Peruvian government owes billions to former landowners and U.S. fund Gramercy – or so they claim — after expropriation in 1969,” said Dreamcatchers’ Marina Fuentes.

UIP will release “Debt” in Peru just before elections.

Also produced by Ibon Cormenzana’s Barcelona-based Arcadia, “Ozzy” turns on a lovable family dog forced to work in an evil toy sweatshop Empire, who has to gather the courage and belief in himself to attempt to escape.

“ ‘Ozzy’ is like ‘Chicken Run’ with dogs, a twist on the classic prison breakout movie,“ said Fuentes, adding that “Ozzy” will be delivered in summer 2016.

Disney will release “Ozzy” in Spain next fall.
