Duo teams to bring Changos


Mexican helmer Rigoberto Castaneda and producer Eduardo Rossoff have formed Changos Volando, an up-start Mexico City-based shingle with several features in theworks.

Among the projects is "Alegorias" (Allegories), a fantasy film set in a 1947 Mexican underworld. Castaneda, helmer of last year's top Mexican hit, "Kilometer 31," penned the script and will direct. The Tribeca Film Institute recently announced that it is supporting the film with a $20,000 fellowship.

Changos Volando also is planning on making a sequel to "Kilometer 31," the most successful horror picture in the history of Mexican cinema. Castaneda is writing and directing.

Rossoff, who produced and helmed "Ave Maria," will return to the director's chair with police drama "Asesinato, Amor y Reincarnacion" (Murder, Love & Reincarnation), based on Juan Jose Rodriguez's "Murder in a Chinese Laundry." (partialdiff)
