The Spanish-language film, directed by Mauro Sarser and Marcela Matta, has also sold to Spain’s largest telcom group, Movistar+, which took all digital rights. AV-Jet has taken Taiwanese rights.

FilmSharks, the Buenos Aires-based sales agency, has also entered discussions for various remakes of the film, including in the English-language.

The film is set to have its world premiere at Fantasia next month. It follows Gloria, a 30-year-old single woman who has never had an orgasm. She finally finds her ideal lover, but the only caveat is that “he” does not inhabit the world of the living.

The film also stars Nenan Pelenur, Mauro Sarser, Federico Guerra, Noelia Campo, Marco Manfrini, Cecilia Sánchez and Nicolás Pereyra.

The Oscar-winning director behind The Others and The Sea Inside will work with AMC Studios, Movistar+ and MOD Pictures to adapt Paco Roca and Guillermo Corral’s graphic novel El Tesoro del Cisne Negro.

The story centers on young diplomat Alex Ventura who teams with a combative public official and a brilliant American lawyer to recover treasure stolen by Frank Wild, who travels the world plundering historic items from the ocean.

The yet-to-be-titled six-part series goes into production this summer and will premiere in 2021 on AMC in the United States, Canada, UK, Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as Movistar+ in Spain.

Ed Carroll, COO at AMC Networks, said: “This project is uniquely a Spanish/American story inspired by real life events that at times seem more unbelievable than fiction – replete with courtroom drama, international intrigue, and even the largest recovered sunken treasure in history.”

Amenábar won the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar in 2005 for The Sea Inside, and he directed Nicole Kidman in 2001’s The Others.
