Lionsgate and Televisa joint venture Pantelion Films is expanding its global brand, tapping Anne-Marie Ross as President of International. Ross is a 13-year veteran of Lionsgate, most recently serving as EVP of Sales overseeing several key European territories, Australia and Japan. Pantelion’s new international division will kick off its slate here in Cannes with the Sean McNamara-directed George Lopez starrer La Vida Robot. Marisa Tomei and Jamie Lee Curtis also feature in the film that’s based on the true story of four undocumented Mexican-American high school students who compete against MIT in a national underwater robotics competition. In addition to overseeing international sales of Pantelion’s own titles, Ross will rep third-party films for international sales and licensing. She will also work closely with Pantelion’s development and production teams to build a globally-focused slate. Pantelion launched in 2010. Its credits include Instructions Not Included, the highest-grossing Spanish-language film ever released in the U.S., as well as Pulling Strings, Casa De Mi Padre and From Prada to Nada.
