Rome-based sales company True Colours has scored a series of deals on four films at AFM, including upcoming comedy drama Superheroes.
Directed by Paolo Genovese, whose credits include Perfect Strangers, Superheroes has been pre-sold to PROvzglyad for Russia and the Baltics, and Swallow Wings for Taiwan.
Principal photography began in September on the film, starring Jasmine Trinca and Alessandro Borghi as a young couple struggling to keep their relationship alive. It is set to be released in Italy by Medusa in the second half of 2020.
True Colours also secured sales of Italian director Roberto De Feo’s debut horror feature The Nest to Russia (Big Movie), Japan (Pflug), Poland (Kino Swiat) and Taiwan (MovieCloud). The Gothic horror debuted in Locarno’s midnight section before playing in competition at Sitges.
Alessandro Siani’s The Most Beautiful Day In The World has been picked up for German-speaking territories (Smart Media) as well as the Middle East and North Africa (Krisco Films). The fantasy comedy debuted at the Rome Film Festival before its release in Italy on October 31, when it scored the best opening weekend of the year for an Italian film. It has taken €5m from around 750,000 admissions to date.
In addition, True Colours has also Alessio Liguori’s claustrophobic horror In The Trap for the Middle East and North Africa (Krisco Films).
