BERLIN -- U.S. film financing and distribution company Tayrona Entertainment has picked up the Latin American rights to director Roland Joffe's There Be Dragons.

Tayrona plans to release the drama on 1,000 screens prior to autumn 2011.

The movie has a U.S. release date of May 6 via Samuel Goldwyn and a March 25 Spain opening via Aurum Producciones.

Dragons tells the story of London-based investigative journalist played by Dougray Scott who tries to unravel a deadly mystery nearly 70 years in the making that links his father (Wes Bentley) to Josemaria Escriva (Charlie Cox), the founder of Opus Dei. However, Robert hits a wall and discovers that the truth is far more than he bargained for.

Quantum of Solace Bond girl Olga Kurylenko, Derek Jacobi and Rodrigo Santoro are also in the cast.
