The first new cast members to hop aboard the unlikely yet totally kick-ass [REC] franchise have been named, and you know what that means … we’re that much closer to [REC] Genesis finally getting made!
According to Bloody Disgusting Leticia Dolera (pictured right) – who ironically played a reporter in the [REC] spoof Spanish Movie – and Diego Martin will topline the film that’s shooting to be completed in 2011.
[REC] directors Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero will split directing responsibilities for the next two films in the franchise, [REC] Genesis and [REC] Apocalypse.
Plaza will direct the first film, [REC] Genesis, which will return to the origin of the original infection that caused humans to turn into zombies. The film is expected to be delivered in the autumn of 2011. [REC] Apocalypse will be directed by Balaguero and will end the [REC] saga with the pandemic spreading to unknown proportions. Plaza will assist on the project, which is expected to be delivered in the autumn of 2012.
Dig on the plot crunch for Part 3 and the artwork below.
The action in [REC] GENESIS encompasses the events of the first two films and after the sense of claustrophobia previously experienced. The action now takes place miles away from the original location and partly in broad daylight, giving the film an entirely fresh yet disturbing new reality. The infection has left the building. In a clever twist that draws together the plots of the first two movies, this third part of the saga also works as a decoder to uncover information hidden in the first two films and leaves the door open for the final installment – the future [REC] Apocalypse.
