Outsider Pictures Acquires Spanish Thriller ‘The Body’

L.A.-based Outsider Pictures has acquired U.S. rights to Oriol Paulo’s B.O. hit The Body (El Cuerpo), the latest film from “The Orphanage” producer Rodar y Rodar, sold by DeAPlaneta Intl., says Variety.

Set at a morgue and shot in a chic but brooding noir style, The Body delivers several twists to trad whodunits formulae. Just one: the murder victim’s body disappears from the morgue, suggesting she may still be alive.

Outsider’s acquisition includes a theatrical and VOD release on The Body, one of the 17 films made available to the international press attending this week’s Madrid de Cine-Spanish Film Screenings via the Egeda/Filmotech.com Veospain VOD portal.

Padro described the film as a “Hitchcock-style psychological thriller” that channels influences such as Rob Reiner’s Misery and Hitchcock’s The Birds.
