Nacho Vigalondo is currently developing English-language sci-fi thriller Windows, which is expected to commence shooting in 2011 in Spain with an English- and Spanish-speaking cast. Vigalondo will also write the script for the $6.5m production and Enrique Lopez Lavigne and Belen Atienza will produce for Spanish outfit Apaches Entertainment.
Apaches Entertainment is teaming up with American production company Color Force for Wednesday, an action adventure about a man who steals a woman’s car, leading to a high-speed car chase across Los Angeles. It’s one of several projects Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has currently committed to directing, the others being BioShock and X: The Man With The X-Ray Eyes. Shooting will take place on location in Los Angeles with Enrique Lopez Lavigne, Nina Jacobson and Bradford Simpson as producers. Massy Tadjedin is responsible for the script. The film is slated for a 2012 release through DreamWorks SKG in the States and Paramount Pictures International in the rest of the world.
Callejon sees Spain’s Antena 3 Films and Roxbury Pictures join forces with Colombia’s Dynamo Producciones for this horror thriller about a woman who attempts to escape from a serial killer. Antonio Trashorras will write and direct the film and Ana de Armas has been confirmed as one of the lead cast.
Robert Kulzer and Reinhard Klooss of Germany’s Constantin Film Produktion will bring a 3-D animated adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’s Tarzan novels to the big screen. Constantin acquired the rights to the books and is currently working on the script for the film version, which will be shot entirely in English. Martin Moszkowicz will executive produce. Tarzan is about a boy born in the jungles of Africa, who is adopted and raised by a clan of apes when his parents are killed.
