Little Ashes Finds Distribution in Spain

Good news for Spain! Variety reports :

Sorolla scoops up 'Little Ashes'

MALAGA, Spain -- Producer-distributor Sorolla Films has acquired Spanish rights to U.K.-Spain co-production "Little Ashes," toplining Robert Pattinson ("Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," "Twilight").

A portrait of the early life and loves of three Spanish artists -- painter Salvador Dali, filmmaker Luis Bunuel and writer Federico Garcia Lorca, "Ashes" bows in Spain May 8, on about 60 screens.

Launching 2004 as a largely low-profile distrib, Sorolla aims to acquire some four pics a year for the Spanish market.

"We look for social issue film titles with fest profile," Sorolla general manager Antonio Mansilla said at the 12th Malaga Spanish Film Festival.

Like many Spanish distrib outfits, Sorolla has reduced exposure to a depressed local distribution market through entry into pic production, a diversification that has become all the more necessary in the recession.

Thanks to Gorob for the tip :)

Great!!! Good to see that the movie got a distributor in Spain. I doubt the movie will make it into German theaters. At least there is the DVD which comes out in August *sigh*

One thing is quite funny though. He gets credited for HP and the Order of the Pheonix and the only "scene" he had was that they showed a tiny picture of him plastered to the mirror in the Room of Requirement just before Harry is kissing Cho. XD

Thats funny!!
