Barcelona’s Rodar y Rodar, producer of The Orphanage and Julia’s Eyes, is teaming with Sony to make psychological horror-thriller Paranormal Xperience 3D, Spain’s first 3D genre film.
Loglined “Xperience the Fear” (nice and cheesy), the pic revolves around two sisters who, with other students, visit an abandoned village to investigate alleged paranormal phenomena.
“This is a PG-13 film conceived from the point of view of its youth market and marketing potential,” said Rodar’s Joaquin Padro. “One of the film types that benefits most from 3D is horror,” added Ivan Losada, managing director of Sony Pictures Releasing de Espana.
As on Orphanage and Guillem Morales’ The Uninvited Guest, Rodar has tapped a first-time feature director, 26-year-old Sergi Vizcaino, a shorts and commercials helmer, for the job. Screenplay is by 25-year-old Daniel Padro, the son of Targarona and Joaquin Padro. Xperience‘s cast come from hit TV series: Maxi Iglesias (“Fisica o quimica”), Nasser Saleh (“La pecera de Eva”), and Luis Fernandez (“Los protegidos”).
“Xperience” will shoot in and around Barcelona, beginning March 21.
