Remember Nacho Cerda? No? Well then, let me refresh your memory. The Spanish director put together the creepy compilation of shorts infamously known as The Awakening/Genesis/Aftermath. They’re so popular that it’s available on Blu-ray (and also highly recommended). But soon after, Cerda delivered the disappointing The Abandoned, a Filmax production released by an infant After Dark Films. It’s been roughly five years since Abandoned, and those familiar with Cerda have been clamoring for more.
Thank the gods of (the original) Clash of the Titans, as Cerda is attached to direct I Am Legion, an English-language vampire movie set during WWII (no, not connected with the Will Smith CGI-massacre). It will be the first project of a 4-picture deal between Gallic comicbook publisher Les Humanoides Associes and Paris-based Full House.
Even more insane is that Cerda will be directing from a screenplay by mother effin’ Richard Stanley, director of Hardware (as seen in last week’s “Office”)!
Revamping a 2006-07 comicbook series, “Legion” pits British Special Ops commandos and Romanian resistance fighters against Nazis, who use a 12-year-old vampire girl to spawn an army of evil.
