Backed by Warner Bros. and a combo of top-notch Spanish producers, Oriol Paulo is set to direct suspense thriller The Invisible Guest, his follow-up to 2012 box office hit The Body, reports Variety out of Cannes.
Mario Casas, once a Spanish teen heartthrob who has grown into character parts, stars with Barbara Lennie (Carlos Vermut’s Magical Girl). Body star Jose Coronado also toplines.
Also written by Paulo, “The Invisible Guest turns on a young businessman who wakes up in a hotel room locked from the inside with the dead body of his lover next to him. He hires a prestigious lawyer, and over one night they work together to clarify what happened in a frenetic race against time.”
Film Factory Entertainment has acquired worldwide rights to The Invisible Guest and will introduce it to buyers at Cannes.
With principal photography scheduled for September, Warner Bros. will release Guest in Spain in 2016.
