Clive Owen and European star Daniel Bruhl will topline “Intruders,” a thriller from “28 Weeks Later” director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.
Universal Pictures International is financing the project with Spanish media company Antena 3. UPI will release the film internationally while domestic distribution rights are up for grabs, with UTA repping the rights to the film.
Producers are trying to keep the logline under wraps, but it is known the story centers on an 11-year old girl forced to confront childhood demons.
Owen will play the girl’s father.
Additional casting is currently underway and production is scheduled to begin in June in London and Madrid, making it Fresnadillo’s first English-language movie since “28 Weeks Later” (the UTA-repped director is still attached to direct “Bioshock” for Universal).
Enrique López Lavigne, longtime producing partner to Fresnadillo, is producing through his Madrid-based Apaches Entertainment. Apaches' Belen Atienza will also be a producer on the project.
Owen, repped by CAA, has done several films for Universal, including “Inside Man,” “Children of Men,” and “Duplicity.”
Bruhl, repped by WME, is best known to American audiences for playing Private Fredrick Zoller in “Inglourious Basterds.”
Hmm, sounds interesting. I'm getting Children of Men vibes from this, so I hope they're similar
