Maya Entertainment Nabs Eva Longoria Parker, Christian Slater Comedy 'Without Men'
Maya Entertainment has acquired worldwide rights to Gabriela Tagliavini's comedy Without Men, starring Eva Longoria Parker, Christian Slater, Oscar Nunez, Kate Del Castillo, Maria Conchita Alonso, Paul Rodriguez, Camryn Manheim and Judy Reyes.
Maya will release the film theatrically in the U.S. as part of its Maya's Indie Film Series, and its Elias Axume unit will handle foreign sales at the upcoming Berlin International Film Festival.
Based on James Canon's Tales From the Town of Widows: A Novel and adapted for the screen by Tagliavini, Men focuses on the women of a small, remote Latin American mountain village that's forever altered the day all of its men are recruited to go fight in the country's civil war. When the men, led by an American reporter (Slater), return to try to reclaim their power, a battle of the sexes follows.
The movie was produced by Indalo Production's Anthony Moody with Lucas Jarach and Jason Price. The deal was negotiated Moody and Jarach on behalf of Indalo and Tonantzin Esparza, Maya Entertainment's director of acquisitions.
