Mayra Espinosa Castro & Jorge Michel Grau (Velarium Arts), Anne-Marie Gélinas & Benoit Beaulieu (EMAfilms) and Andrew Noble (Filmoption International) signed the deal in Cannes for Rodrigo Hernandez’s sci-fi.
Based on Hernandez’s short Protocol, the film is currently in development with an aim for principal photography to start in Mexico in 2015. Post-production, including the visual effects, will take place in Montreal.
The partners originally met during the first edition of Fantasia’s international co-production market Frontières. Noble joined the project during the Guadalajara market last March.
Gélinas is also the producer of Frontières project Turbo Kid, which recently completed principal photography.
At Los Cabos International Film Festival Velarium Arts did the first pitching to Anne Marie and Andrew Noble for Multiplier.
