Aurum’s other acquisitions include Son Of No One, The Three Musketeers and Vicky The Viking 2.
Leading indie distributor Aurum has taken Spanish theatrical rights to a slate of high-profile films, including Bruce Willis starrer Kane & Lynch and Son Of No One, starring Al Pacino.
Aurum and its sister company Momentum Pictures sealed the deal at Cannes for Kane & Lynch and Son Of No One with Nu Image for Spain. The former is directed by Simon Crane and stars Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx as a pair of death row inmates who escape to retrieve a stolen fortune. The latter is directed by Dito Montiel and is about a young cop forced to patrol the neighbourhood he grew up in, dragging up old secrets in the process, starring Channing Tatum, alongside Al Pacino and Juliette Binoche.
Other pick-ups for Spain include Paul W S Anderson’s The Three Musketeers from Summit and Vicky The Viking 2 (in 3D)from Timeless/Constantin.
The Three Musketeers will be played by Matthew Macfadyen, Ray Stevenson and Luke Evans, with Logan Lerman taking the role of D’Artagnan. Supporting cast includes Orlando Bloom as the Duke of Buckingham and Christoph Waltz as Cardinal Richelieu. Aurum’s sister company Alliance has taken Canadian rights to the film.
Vicky The Viking 2 follows the huge success of the first children’s action adventure film, which took an impressive $5m in Spain also through Aurum last year.
Aurum has also taken Spanish rights to two key local titles, Eduardo Chapero Jackson’s hotly anticipated debut Verbo and Eugenio Mira’s thriller Agnosia, starring leading Spanish actor Eduardo Noriega. Both deals were done with Telecinco Cinema.
