Spanish sales agency Film Factory Ent. has picked up international distribution rights to Miguel Angel Toledo‘s psychological thriller La Senda (The Path), co-penned by writer-director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later, Intruders and the forthcoming The Crow remake), reports Variety.
Toledo’s directorial film debut “turns on a couple, whose marriage is on the rocks, who decide to spend Christmas night with their 7-year-old son in an isolated, snow-bound cabin in the mountains.”
The pic’s cast include Spanish thesps Gustavo Salmeron (Body Confusion) and Irene Visedo (The Devil’s Backbone). Co-written by Toledo and Fresnadillo, script has “a tense and claustrophobic atmosphere,” said Film Factory founder Vicente Canales.
Now in post, pic shot for six weeks in Spain’s Teruel province and Alicante’s Ciudad de la Luz Studios. Budget was Euro2.5 million ($3.6 million).
