Alta Films hasformed a deal with leading Spanish production company Tornasol Films to handle the local release of its projects.

The first film to be released by Alta will be Juan Martinez Moreno’s criminal thriller A Good Man on April 30. It will be followed by some major Tornasol co-productions including Francis Ford Coppola’s Tetro, Danis Tanovic’s thriller Triage, starring Colin Farrell, and Alex De La Iglesia’s murder mystery The Yellow Mark. All release dates to be confirmed.

Speaking exclusively to ScreenDaily, Enrique Gonzalez Kuhn, head of acquisitions at Alta Films, said: ‘We have spoken with Tornasol and an agreement has been reached for us to show all of their films in Spain, including Triage, Tetro and The Yellow Mark.’

The cost of the deal has not been disclosed but it is a major coup for Alta Films, which has made some astute signings in recent years including Gomorrah, Caramel and The Lives Of Others.

Forthcoming Tornasol projects include Argentinean director Marcelo Pinyero’s Thursday’s Widows, currently shooting in Argentina and Spain, and husband and wife duo Dominic Harari and Teresa Pelegri’s new film The Food Guide To Love, a French-Spanish-UK co-production set to shoot later this year.
