Well. That was quick. Gigi Saul Gerrero and her team from Luchagore Productiongs only made their pitch at the Frontières International Co-Production Market yesterday morning here at Fantasia. They have agreed to work with Raven Banner Entertainment on her feature film, El Gigante
I chatted with Gigi and her team last night at the pub and they were excited about how well their pitch went and having a full schedule of meetings today. Tonight's conversation will be even more exciting! With more drinks to be sure!
Raven Banner has boarded Luchagore Productions, El Gigante, directed by Gigi Saul Guerrero for worldwide rights, which was featured in the current edition of The Frontieres International Co-Production Market. They will also serve as Executive Producers.
The film tells the story of a deranged maniac in a Luchador mask named El Gigante who wrestles his prey to the mat in a grisly entertainment ritual of thrill-packed culinary prep for his cannibalistic family.
The deal was negotiated by Luchagore's Raynor Shima and and Raven Banner's James Fler and Michael Paszt
"The team of Gigi, Raynor, and Luke at Luchagore is one of the most exciting new genre production companies to come out of Canada and we're excited to get in the ring with them," stated Raven Banner Managing Partner Michael Paszt.
Producer Shima said, "Luchagore is proud to further strengthen its bond with Raven Banner in the development of El Gigante by coming on as EP, worldwide sales, and Canadian distribution. The Frontières Market has been a proving ground for the future investment of upcoming filmmakers."
