Cowboys Croatian production house Kabinet has started negotiations with one of the world’s biggest production companies – UK’s Working Title Films – for the rights to produce a remake of the film in English. Working Title Films is a British film production company, based in London and owned by Universal Studios. The company has produced a variety of award-winning films, such as The Big Lebowski, Fargo, Frost/Nixon, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Anna Karenina, United 93, Notting Hill, Pride and Prejudice, Love Actually and Johnny English Reborn.
Cowboys (Kauboji), which is directed by Tomislav Mrsic and based on an eponymous record-breaking theatre play written and directed by Sasa Anocic, is about theatre director Sasha returns from the big city to his home town where he is offered to re-start the neglected local theater. The problem is that the city does not have any actors. After they advertise auditions for a new show, five very interesting candidates show up. Their only common ground in the field of culture is the Western genre – so the director and his new ensemble decide to stage a Western.
