GIRL WITH NO MOUTH: Worldwide Sales Picked up For Can Evrenol's Coming of Age Flick
While Can Evrenol (Baskin and Houewife) is hard at work on the streaming series The Protector back in Turkey, his personal project Girl With No Mouth was presented at the proof of concept presentation of the Frontières Platform at Cannes this past weekend. Girl With No Mouth is based on a short story by Turkish comic book artist Cem Ozuduru.
Screen Daily reported early today that worldwide sales were picked up by Paris outfit Versatile with the lone exception being North America. Those rights were picked up by one of Evrenol`s most frequent partners XYZ Films.
Girl With No Mouth is a coming-of-age story about Perihan, a girl born without a mouth, who is befriended by a gang of three boys also missing body parts, while on the run from the authorities.
As we stated above, Evrenol is currently working on Turkey`s first Netflix original show called The Protector, a superhero series starring Cagatay Ulusoy. According to Evrenol, Ulusoy is a Turkish telenova super celebrity in Turkey, the Middle East and Latin America. The things you learn when chatting with your friends.
Filming on Girl With No Mouth is expected to begin in August.
