Martel to Helm Spanish Invasion Film
Word has come through via Cannes this morning that director Lucrecia Martel is getting ready to follow up her movie Woman Without a Head (surprisingly, not horror) with an alien invasion movie that sounds pretty epic.
Variety reports that the film is called El Eternauta and will follow a group of survivors who, after living through a deadly snow that overtakes Europe, are forced to battle invading aliens and their army of giant insects.
The film is being produced by Argentina’s K&S Films, who also just closed a deal for the horror film Cimarron during the film festival. Production on El Eternauta will be extensive, to say the least, and since it’s going to need a Spanish-speaking lead, huge set pieces and loads of effects, don’t expect to hear too much about it anytime soon. Especially since Martel has yet to write the script...
