Wild Bunch has picked up the international sales rights (NOT distribution rights, for all the sites who will lift this news and misreport it) to Oscar-nominated Spanish director Nacho Vigalondo‘s hotly anticipated new thriller project Windows, currently in development, reports Screen Daily.
Vigalondo has written the script for Windows, which is going to be a thriller about watching and being watched on the internet “in a style similar to Alfred Hitchock’s film Rear Window,” Vigalondo told the mag.
Vigalondo’s sci-fi romantic comedy Extraterrestre is currently screening to much acclaim at the San Sebastian film festival and at TIFF.
Pre-production on Windows is expected to start soon and the producers are approaching top level US/international actors for lead roles of the same calibre as Ryan Reynolds, who starred in Spanish director Rodrigo Cortes’ film Buried.
Vigalondo’s short film “7:35 In The Morning” was nominated for an Oscar and his feature debut TimeCrimes was a great success in Spain and is due to be remade in the US by DreamWorks.
