Closing one of the trendiest mainstream films coming from Argentina, Sony Pictures Television has acquired the rights to Latin America on "Los Adoptantes" (The Adopters).
Sony will distribute the film in three territories in Latin America. The agreement does not include a theatrical distribution in Argentina, which is still under negotiation.
FilmSharks Intl., The sales agent for "The Adopters", is also in talks to close the United States, Spain, the UK and Germany, among other territories, said Guido Rud of FilmSharks .
Now in post-production, the feature film marks the second solo release by Argentine director Daniel Gimelberg, who co-directed "Hotel Room" with Catalan Cesc Gay. Gay ("A Gun in Every Hand", "Truman") has become one of Spain's most popular quality auteur.
The original idea of the film is by Gimelberg, who is gay and adopted, and Gay.
Interpreted by Diego Gentile ("Wild Tales") and Rafel Spregelburd ("Zama"), "The Adopters" activates the forty-year-old TV show Martin, who desperately wants to become a father. His partner Leonardo is much less acute. While their ten-year relationship is being tested, an athlete from the Martin therapy group who wants to get pregnant suggests that it could be his sperm donor and the trio to bring up the baby.
