The sales agency is preparing to commence business at the Cannes market on Roland Joffe’s sweeping drama produced by Ignacio Gomez Sancha, Ignacio Nunez and Joffe.
Aurum released There Be Dragons in Spain on Mar 25 and the adventure story, spanning the Spanish Civil War to present day, opens in the US on May 6 through Samuel Goldwyn Films. Wes Bentley, Olga Kurylenko, Rodrigo Santoro, Dougray Scott and Derek Jacobi star.
“Bleiberg Entertainment’s passion for the film and strong reputation in the industry made the company the inherent choice,” Nunez said. “We anticipate a strong market in Cannes and look forward to unveiling the film to international audiences everywhere this year.”
“It is an honour to represent a film of this scope and vision,” Roman Kopelevich, head of sales for Bleiberg Entertainment, said. “Roland Joffe is such a unique filmmaker whose style and breadth of storytelling is missing from films today. Ignacio Sancha and Ignacio Nunez have produced a true big-screen event and we thank them for choosing our company to promote and sell this special film.”
Rob Nau of Alexander, Nau, Lawrence and Frumes brokered the deal for both parties.
