Pablo Larraín’s latest film starring Luis Gnecco and Gael García Bernal has completed principal photography in Chile, Argentina and France.
Neruda centres on the cat-and-mouse game between a police inspector and the dissident Chilean poet Pablo Neruda during the late 1940s. Guillermo Calderon wrote the screenplay.
Bernal and his No director reunite with cast members Alfredo Castro, Alejandro Goic, Jaime Vadell and Marcelo Alonso as well as Roberto Farías. Mercedes Morán and Pablo Derquí round out the cast.
Neruda is an international co-production between Chile’s Fabula, France’s Funny Balloons and Reborn Production, Spain’s Setembro Cine, Argentina’s AZ Films and US-based Participant Media.
Juan de Dios Larraín produce with Peter Danner, Alejandro Zito and Fernanda Del Nido.
Fox will distribute Neruda in Chile and Funny Balloons handles international sales. Wild Bunch distributes in France.
