There are several quick stories coming out of Filmax today, and we’ve got them all in one neat place. Mainly because we didn’t feel like writing a separate story for each. We’re allowed to be a little lazy every now and again, too, ya know. Read on!
First up, the studio has announced that director Jordan Barker’s Torment and Exorcismus director Manuel Carballo’s The Returned are both in the process of casting and will begin shooting this October.
In Torment “Cory Morgan; his wife, Sarah; and their 3-year-old daughter, Emily, decide to spend a quiet family holiday alone. When Sarah starts seeing strange things around the house, it soon becomes clear that they have some unwanted guests… Now the family are forced to fight for their lives in what has become a festival of terror of epic proportions.”
In The Returned “Kate works at the hospital in the Return Unit, helping those who have been infected by the virus that turns people into zombies. Kate’s dedication to her work is absolute, but few people realize that for her it is also a personal matter; Kate’s own husband, Jason, has been returned.”
In other news, Miguel Angel Vivas, winner of the horror feature and directing prizes at the 2010 Austin Fantastic Festival for Kidnapped, is teaming with screenwriter Alberto Marini (Sleep Tight) on I Will Die Tonight. Variety is reporting this story as new, but we’ve been telling you that for about a month already. Odd. The vendetta thriller turns on a man framed in a murder case. Marini has written a first draft of the screenplay.
Finally, check out the first one-sheet and synopsis for director Jaime Bartolome’s Stranded below.
“It’s the night of New Year’s Eve, and a high-speed train breaks down in the middle of nowhere. Eager to get where they’re going to celebrate this special night with their loved ones, the passengers are becoming more and more frustrated with the situation, and their sense of isolation is steadily growing. The lack of information is fertile ground for paranoia, and the passengers are quick to jump to the conclusion that the Arab man traveling on the train might have intentions other than simply reaching his destination.”
