Gens joins Biehn, Aspect on three-film genre slate
French genre master Xavier Gens has come on board to produce the trio of films recently announced by Blanc/Biehn Productions and UK-based Aspect Film.
Gens will produce the series with Michael Biehn, kicking off with The Farm. Chiller Film, the genre arm of Aspect Film, will handle sales. Separate directors will work on each of the three projects.
The next two to go will be Up And Down directed by Carlo Rizzo and The Predicator directed by Greg Morin.
“Cold Skin is my top priority project after The Divide,” Gens said. “It’s a passion project which will be shot soon. We are supposed to lock the budget in Cannes. I am also developing a big French gangster film with LGM and Gaumont in France, which will shoot in 2013. The Farm will be a good fun ride after those 2 big projects.”
“I truly enjoyed working with Xavier,” said Biehn. “The freedom he gives his actors and crew is unprecedented. He’s incredibly creative and has a style that I truly respect.”
