Shiver Helmer Preps Naumón
Dark Sky Films has picked up Isidro Ortiz’s Shiver, about an adolescent whose relocation to an isolated village with his mother is tainted when he becomes the main suspect in a series of shocking events. We’ll be seeing it soon then (it’s playing during HorrorHound Weeekend, if you’re going), and today Aullidos got word on the director’s next outing, Naumón.
Based on the controversial novel by Belgian author Amelie Nothomb Sulphuric Acid, Naumón will follow a faux reality show called “Concentration”, in which random people are picked up off the streets and dumped onto a freighter drifting through the ocean. Their fates are decided by the viewers at home, and needless to say, few of them make it out alive.
The title refers to the name of the boat the contestants will be on, which is evident from the concept art Aullidos got its hands on. The article also states that Asia Argento is being eyed for one of the leads, which would be a pretty sexy bit of casting if it works out!
