This is the first Peruvian film that will have international adaptations. The hit comedy will have Italian and Mexican remakes, and talks of U.S. rights are underway. Watch trailer for ‘Papá Youtuber’ below.
The Peruvian comedy ‘Papá Youtuber’ is going international. The Argentine film agency Filmsharks sold remake rights for the film at this year’s Ventana Sur, Latin America’s most important market for filmography. Variety reports that Filmsharks, through their international arm, The Remake Company, came to agreements with Cinepolis in Mexico and Colorado Films in Italy.
Variety also reports that Spain, Germany and U.S. negotiations for remake rights are underway. Filmsharks CEO Guido Rud states that “a high-profile female director” would be part of the deal with the U.S.
This is the first made in Peru film that will have international adaptations. ‘Papá Youtuber’ is written by Gonzálo Ladines and directed by Fernando Villarán. It follows the life of a typical family of four living in Lima. Their life is shaken up when the father is fired from his job. Advised by his teen children and enticed by the prospect of making quick money, he sets on the path of becoming a famous YouTuber. The film was a box office hit in Peru when it was released in April 2019.
