If the perverse black-comedy Weekend at Bernie’s taught us anything, it’s that once you throw a corpse into the mix, things can get seriously funny in the most inappropriate of ways. Ready to find out how funny death can be again?
According to Screen Daily multi-award winning Spanish writer-director Daniel Monzón has revealed further details of his new projects to follow his hit Cell 211.
Monzón and Cell 211 writer Jorge Guerricaechevarría have completed an original English-language screenplay called Murder Weekend, which promises to be far lighter in tone than Cell 211.
Expect a comedy-thriller about a group of struggling actors who make ends meet by participating in staged “murder weekends” for crime enthusiasts. The hitch comes when they have to deal with a real corpse.
The film is being set up as a co-production between Spain, the UK and the US. Monzón is hoping to assemble a top-notch British ensemble cast. Look for more soon!
