JUST ANNOUNCED at FANTASIA
Raven Banner teams up with Luchagore at Fantasia’s Frontières Co-Production Market for EL GIGANTE
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.”
