Bloody Disgusting just received word on the first ever casting for Darren Lynn Bousman’s 11-11-11, which has officially gone behind cameras in Barcelona, Spain. Timothy Gibbs (Witchboard 2), Michael Landes (Final Destination 2, Possession ), Wendy Glenn (“Nip/Tuck”), Lluis Soler, Ángela Rosal, Brendan Price (Dagon), Salomé Jimenez, Benjamin Cook, and Montse Alcoverro all star in the latest genre effort from the director of Saw II-IV, Mother’s Day and Repo! The Genetic Opera. Inside you’ll find a few more details on the religious horror that’s said to have more scares than all of Bousman’s first films combined — I love the idea of casting relative unknowns as it’ll amp up the scares for certain.
The new horror thriller by Darren Lynn Bouman (SAW II, III, IV), Canónigo Films and Wayne Allan Rice-Capacity Pictures starts shooting in Barcelona from the 17th of January 2011.
The concept is based on the 11:11 phenomenon, whereby the 11th month of the year 2011 at 11h 11m the eleventh door will open and supernatural entities will enter the Earth. Such creepy and mysterious theory of numerology assures that the 11 is a warning from celestial entities who throughout history have tried to communicate with humans. A gripping story full of tension and psychological terror centered in the lives of three people affected by this strange and terrifying event.
The shooting of this new exciting project by who is currently the favorite horror films director among this new fledging boom of horror film directors, and who is installed in Barcelona from December, begins on January the 17th and that will be released worldwide on November the 11th of 2011 (11/11/11). The shooting will involve scenes particularly scary in what spectacular special FX are concerned, meticulously designed, that undoubtedly will leave the audience horrified by its gripping images. Such spectacular scenes will be happening over the months of January and February in various locations in Barcelona city and surroundings. City that has been chosen as the favorite by many directors when locating their films.
The film is set in New York and Barcelona; with scenes ranging from sequences that depict claustrophobic and psychological disturbing situations, to others where a more graphic kind of horror takes over as in classic horror films. Scenes of great aesthetic appeal that reflect one of the paradigms which Bousman is in seek of: “a reflection of the great terrifying abyss facing man, the fear of the unknown and loneliness”, as already Bousman declared in one of his interviews shortly after moving to Barcelona from Los Angeles.
