Korean sales agent Cineclick Asia, newly incorporated into Fantom Co Ltd, has today announced additional foreign pick-ups from Argentina and Australia for its Cannes market line-up, as well as the crank-up of Afghan title Opium War and other title updates.

This follows its acquisition of world sales right for the Chinese film Tuya's Marriage which won the Golden Bear at this year's Berlinale and saw a slew of sales at the European Film Market and Hong Kong Filmart.

The new additions include Australian comedy Lucky Miles, directed by Michael James Rowland. The film tells how a Cambodian, an Iraqi and an Indonesian are stranded in the Australian outback and their struggles to find the paradise each has been dreaming of respectively.

Lucky Miles world premiered at the Adelaide Film Festival, and will have its international premiere at the Cannes market.

Cineclick is also attached as sales agent, co-financier and co-producer for Misencounter (working title) by Argentine director Pablo Trapero whose Crane World won the critics award at Venice and whose El Bonaerense was in Cannes' Un Certain Regard sidebar.

A human drama, Misencounter tells of an ill-fated, beautiful college girl who accidentally kills her lovers and gives birth to a son in prison. Inspired by a real prison for convicted mothers and their prison-born children, Trapero plans to deliver the film in early 2008.

Cineclick Asia's first foreign film pick-up, Siddiq Barmak's Opium War, starts production in Afghanistan on April 30. The film from the Golden Globe award-winning auteur of Osama, aiming to premiere in early 2008, is about American soldiers who meet an Afghan family living in Russian tanks. Cineclick Asia is co-producing with Barmak Film and Japan's Happinet Pictures.

Cineclick's other Cannes films include Kim Ki-duk's Breath, which is in the official competition, and A Bittersweet Life director Kim Jee-woon's so-called Oriental Western The Good, The Bad And The Weird (working title), which has just started production this month. A promo reel will be screening at the market.

In addition, Cineclick has announced it will be entering into foreign film acquisitions in earnest for theatrical and DVD release in the Korean market. The company previously distributed the Che Guevara biopic Motorcycle Diaries and Nakata Hideo's Dark Water.
