Casting has begun on We Are What We Are director Jorge Michel Grau’s latest film, Keep Quiet, and we have the first bit of news and more for you right here. Read on for the details.
According to Variety, Damian Alcazar (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian) is in negotiations to topline Grau’s Keep Quiet. Mayra Espinosa Castro at Mexico City-based Velarium Arts is producing. Todd Brown of L.A.-based XYZ Films is co-developing with a view to co-producing. XYZ Films also has a first option on international rights.
Alcazar will play a man who moves his 14-year-old son to a new home after he witnesses his mother’s rape and murder. But the rundown housing complex feeds the son’s violent schizophrenia until he thinks his father is a werewolf, whom he’ll have to kill.
Keep Quiet is being pitched at the Guadalajara Festival’s 9th Ibero-American Film Co-production Meeting, which kicked off Sunday.
After the murder of his wife, Alberto decides to exile with his son, Alan. Both venture into a violent world inhabited by mean characters that frame the development of Alan’s schizophrenia: He hallucinates that his father is a werewolf, a violent creature who threatens everything – Alan included – in his vicinity. According to legend, only a loved one can kill the beast. And Alan knows the legend.
