First Official Casting for ‘REC: Genesis’!

Fans of Filmax’s REC franchise get ready for two more films as co-creator Paco Plaza is now in pre-production on REC: Genesis, the third film that set up the fourth and final REC: Apocalypse.

Bloody Disgusting learned exclusively that Leticia Dolera (pictured) – who ironically played a reporter in the REC spoof Spanish Movie – and Diego Martin will topline the Spanish-language film that’s shooting to be completed in 2011.

The action in REC: Genesis encompasses the events of the first two films and after the sense of claustrophobia previously experiences. The action now takes place miles away from the original location and partly in broad daylight giving the film an entirely fresh yet disturbing new reality. The infection has left the building. In a clever twist that draws together the plots of the first two movies this third part of the saga also works as a decoder to uncover information hidden in the first two films and leaves the door open for the final installment the future REC: Apocalypse.
