Fulwell 73 expands into non-English-language production with Boundless

Rodrigo Santoro in Boundless

UK indie Fulwell 73 is expanding into non-English-language drama production, boarding the previously announced Amazon and RTVE period drama Boundless as a coproducer.

Amazon Prime Video and Spanish broadcaster RTVE revealed the feature film and three-part TV series project last year, with Spanish producer Elcano attached.

Now Fulwell 73 is coming on board, with partner Leo Pearlman and senior executive Heather Greenwood producing on the project in partnership with Elcano’s Miguel Menéndez de Zubillaga

Boundless tells the story of the first circumnavigation of the world by explorers Juan Sebastián Elcano and Ferdinand Magellan, who set sail from Spain more than 500 years ago.

The film and connected series are directed by Simon West (Con Air, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) and star Rodrigo Santoro (Westworld) as Magellan and Álvaro Morte (Money Heist) as Elcano.

Shooting wrapped in August on location in Spain. Both projects are expected to be released in 2022 on Amazon Prime Video and Spanish broadcaster RTVE.

Boundless marks Fulwell 73’s expansion into international coproductions as its first ever Spanish-language project.

It also marks the latest in a line of new scripted projects from the company as part of its expansion into this sector. Other forthcoming releases include Cinderella for Amazon Prime Video, based on an original idea from Fulwell co-founder James Corden; and Dragged to Church, an inspiring and uplifting true story of a Welsh community that hosted a drag show to raise vital funds needed to bring their church back from disrepair.
