21/05/2012  BUENA VISTA INTERNATIONAL ACQUIRES DISTRIBUTION RIGHTS FOR SPAIN ZIP & ZAP MARBLE AND THE GANG

Zeta Cinema (Three Meters above the Sky) Mod Producciones (Biutiful, Agora), Antena 3 Films (FIN, Julia’s Eyes) and  Kowalski Films (Me too) join their talents to bring the screen in real image, the popular Spanish comic ZIP & ZAP created by Escobar. ZIP & ZAP are two of Spain’s most beloved comic book characters. First published in 1946, their stories have entertained several generations of children, selling millions of copies over almost 7 decades. ZIP & ZAP AND THE MARBLE GANG updates the essence of these universal characters and takes the best from the children’s adventure tradition, some spectacular settings and the latest state of the art FX and melds them into a high quality event movie, capable of attracting a universal family audience to what will be a must-see in theaters.

Directed by Oskar Santos (For the Good of Others) and written by Jorge Lara and Francisco Roncal, ZIPI And ZAPE AND THE MARBLE GANG begin shooting in early July with the participation of Antena 3 Television, La Sexta and Canal + and the support of the ICAA, ICIC and ICO.

SYNOPSIS

Naughty twins Zip & Zap are sent to a strict summer school where all entertainment is forbidden.  Their mischief gets out of hand when they form the Marble Gang, the children’s Resistance, to defy the evil Headmaster.  The children wind up uncovering a mysterious secret hidden deep within the school leading to the most wonderful adventure of their lives.
