France’s Luminor, Russia’s CTB and Romania’s Libra Film are set to co-produce Cannibal, a suspense thriller from Manuel Martin Cuenca (The Weakness of the Bolshevik, Half of Oscar) set up at Spain’s Mod Producciones (Agora, Biutiful, Fin) and Martin Cuenca’s label, La Loma Blanca, reports Variety.
Also written by Martin Cuenca and long-time co-scribe Alejandro Hernandez, Cannibal turns on Carlos (played by Antonio de la Torre), Granada’s most prestigious tailor, a respected man who dedicates his life to his work and eating, especially women.

Luminor is the production subsidiary of Films Distribution. Film Factory has acquired international rights to Cannibal and will introduce the title at next week’s American Film Market.
Principal photography is skedded for January in Granada.
