ore Spanish horror is on the horizon as The Orphanage producer Rodar y Rodar is re-teaming with Spain’s Antena 3 Films to make The Body (El cuerpo), reports Variety.
The project is the feature debut of Oriol Paulo, one of Spain’s rising stars. Paulo leapt to notice as co-scribe on Guillem Morales’ Julia’s Eyes, a Rodar-Antena 3 Films co-production with UPI.
Body stars Jaime Pena as “a police inspector sent to investigate the disappearance of a woman’s body from a morgue.”
“A Hitchcock-style psychological thriller,” Body will shoot January with A-list Spanish-speaking stars, Padro said. Paulo added that Body channels influences such as Rob Reiner’s Misery and Hitchcock’s The Birds.
Fans of The Orphanage can expect a similar tone as Body will use DP Oscar Faura.
