“[Film Factory’s] Vicente Canales has a special talent and sensibility to recognize the quality and commercial potential of film projects which, given their originality and auteurist values, are difficult to classify,” Agustin Almodovar told Variety.
Film Factory sold Cannes competition player “Wild Tales,” co-produced by Pedro and Agustin Almodovar, which grossed $27 million worldwide.
Set up at the Almodovars’ Madrid label El Deseo, the production renews a relationship between the Almodovars and Coixet. The brothers produced 2003’s “My Life Without Me” and 2005’s “The Secret Life of Words,” both starring Sarah Polley.
Now in pre-production, “It Snows in Benidorm” (“Nieva en Benidorm”) is in English and Spanish, and set to shoot in November.
