AFM 2012: Another Cannibal Flick to Chew On
In this health-crazed world of ours, it's no surprise that cannibalism has stayed on the menu for horror fans for decades. Another flesh-eating flick is on its way that's guaranteed to be more fun that having an Asian chef serve you his genitals.
According to Variety, France’s Luminor, Russia’s CTB, and Romania’s Libra Film are set to co-produce Cannibal, a suspense thriller from Manuel Martin Cuenca (The Weakness of the Bolshevik, Half of Oscar) set up at Spain’s Mod Producciones (Agora, Biutiful, Fin) and Martin Cuenca’s label, La Loma Blanca.
Also written by Martin Cuenca and long-time co-scribe Alejandro Hernandez, Cannibal tells the tale of Carlos (played by Antonio de la Torre), Granada’s most prestigious tailor, a respected man who dedicates his life to his work and eating, especially women. One day he meets Nina, the twin sister of a woman he’s eaten, an immigrant from Eastern Europe.
Luminor is the production subsidiary of Films Distribution. Film Factory has acquired international rights to Cannibal and will introduce the title at next week’s American Film Market. Principal photography is scheduled for January in Granada.
