Award-winning Argentinean director Adolfo Aristarain will shoot the thriller La Muerte Lenta De Luciana B in Argentina and Spain next March.

Based on the novel by Guillermo Martinez (writer of The Oxford Murders), La Muerte Lenta De Luciana B tells the story of an assassin who methodically kills off everyone close to a young woman, Luciana (Celeste Cid).

She suspects a famous writer, Kloster (Dario Grandinetti) to be behind the deaths, but the police don't believe her, so she turns to the help of a rival writer (Juan Diego Botto).

Aristarain wrote the script in May with the plan to shoot in October, but had to postpone it until March. He plans to film for 9 weeks in total, six weeks of exterior shots in Buenos Aires and three on set in Spain.

Gerardo Herrero, Alex De La Iglesia's long time collaborator, is producing the film.

Aristarain's films have proved hugely popular in Latin America and Spain, with his last project, Roma, picking up three prizes at the Argentinean Film Critics Association Awards and four Goya award nominations in 2005.
