Lantica Pictures announced the end of principal photography of Cómplices, which is now in advanced post-production stage. On Cómplices, Lantica Pictures was the production company and financier, and Pinewood Dominican Republic Production Services physically made the film and delivered to Pantelion/Lionsgate.
Cómplices is a romantic comedy which marks the company’s first Dominican-shot film under the multi-picture deal signed with Pantelion Films.
Cómplices tells the story of an uncle who is forced to take his despondent nephew under his wing as they go on an exotic adventure to the Dominican Republic. The movie was directed by Luis Eduardo Reyes and produced by Leo Zimbrón, producer of the Mexican hit Pulling Strings, with Sandra Condito and Lantica Pictures, Lantica Media’s production company. Cómplices features Mexican actors Arath De La Torre and Jesús Zavala as well as Dominican stars Liche Ariza, Paula Ferry, Sharlene Taulé and Claudette Lalí.
Pantelion Films will head up domestic and international distribution through the second partnership agreement between the two companies which was announced last May during the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.
“The completion of principal photography on our first project under the multi-picture agreement with Pantelion Films is an achievement of which we are quite proud,” commented Antonio Gennari, CEO of Lantica Media. It’s another step forward in strengthening the Dominican film industry and allowing the world to see what we have to offer”.
Paul Presburger, CEO of Pantelion Films added, “We had a wonderful experience working with Lantica Pictures and their team. We look forward to continuing to produce great films in the Dominican Republic with Lantica Media."
Cómplices was produced entirely in the Dominican Republic, taking advantage of the diverse range of locations the country has to offer, as well as the powerful incentives provided by the country’s Cinema Law.
