The Apocalypse Hits ‘Kidnapped’ Director’s ‘Welcome to Harmony’

Cell 211 co-producers Vaca Films are set to make a big sci-fi horror project provisionally titled Welcome To Harmony, to be directed by Miguel Angel Vivas. The main reason you should be excited is that Vivas directed the awesome Spanish-language Kidnapped, an intense and violent home invasion movie recently acquired by IFC Films.

Based on Juan De Dios Garduño’s best-selling novel “Y Pese A Todo…,” the film will be about a World War III, pitting the US, Great Britain and Israel against Iran, China and Russia. Welcome To Harmony will focus on chemical weapons that wipe out everyone in each country, except a father and daughter and their hated neighbour living in Bangor, Maine who have to confront unwanted visitors.

Even cooler, Vivas is currently writing the script for the project alongside Alberto Marini, former director of international productions at Filmax, who helped develop key titles at the studio including the [Rec] films, The Way and Sleep Tight. “It’s an apocalyptic horror film in the mould of ‘I Am Legend’ and ’28 Days Later,’” Vaca Films’ Borja Pena told ScreenDaily.
