Film Factory Sharpens its Fangs
Mysterious creatures. You have gotta love them. Especially when they're hellbent on devouring anyone who foolishly crosses their paths. Speaking of which...
According to Variety, Barcelona's Escandalo Films, one of Spain's key producers of genre pics, the country's biggest movie export commodity, has greenlit its latest fantasy film, the chiller Colmillos (Fangs). Film Factory Ent. has acquired international rights outside Spain.
Alberto de Toro, who cut his teeth editing Mexican-Spanish Aztec curse chiller KM 31 and Spain's Ghost Graduation, will make his directorial debut on Fangs, working from a screenplay with novelist Salvador Macip.
Adapting the award-winning young adult bestseller of the same title, written by Macip and Sebastia Roig, Fangs tells the tale of a troubled teen who is kidnapped, shuttled to a house in the mountains, and forced to work as a slave. The only escape is through a dark forest where mysterious, savage creatures lurk.
Production begins in September.
