EXCLUSIVE: FilmSharks has brokered deals for the animated feature, featuring the voice of Friends star Lisa Kudrow, in Mexico and South Korea.

El Americano

Ricardo Arnaiz and Mike Kunkel’s animated feature El Americano 3D has sold to Cinepolis partner Neverlanding Pictures in Mexico and Andamiro Films for South Korea in a pair of deals brokered by FilmSharks.

Guido Rud, head of the Buenos-Aires-based sales agency, previously closed deals in Middle East and Turkey (Tanweer), CIS and Eastern Europe (Top Film), Peru (Star Film) and central America (Palmera International).

Rud said a multi-territory deal with a US major would be announced shortly on the story of a young Mexican parrot that embarks on an epic quest to persuade an American crime-fighting TV celebrity to defend his family from bullies.

Lisa Kudrow stars (and serves as executive producer) alongside Edward James Olmos, Rico Rodriguez, Cheech Marin, Kate del Castillo, and Erik Estrada.
