    Miramax buys key to 'City of Men' - The Hollywood Reporter 9/25/06

    Miramax annexes 'City' rights

    NEW YORK -- Miramax Films has acquired North American rights to "City of Men" (Cidade dos Homens), the big-screen sequel to Fernando Meirelles' Academy Award-nominated Brazilian drama "City of God." It also picked up U.K., Australian, New Zealand and South African rights to the film. The feature also is an adaptation of the Sundance Channel series of the same name, which continues the story of two young friends who find themselves on opposite sides of a gang war in the rough slums of Rio de Janeiro.

    Miramax president Daniel Battsek sealed the deal at this month's Toronto International Film Festival after vp acquisitions Peter Lawson brought in the project. The executives based their decision on a five-minute promo reel of the film, which is now being edited. Meirelles, who received an Oscar nomination for best director for "God," will produce the new film, with Paulo Morelli helming a screenplay by Elena Soarez. Morelli, Andrea Barata Ribeiro and Bel Berlinck are producing with Meirelles through their 02 Filmes outfit.
