After 2007’s 28 Weeks Later, big things were predicted for director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, but since that flick, he hasn’t actually made another movie (most of the films he’s been attached to, such as Bioshock, seem to have stalled). That looks set to change though, as THR reports the Spaniard has inked a deal to direct Universal’s horror-thriller, Intruders, which will star Clive Owen.
Based on a script by Jaime Marques and Nico Casariego, the film will centre on an 11-year-old girl who is forced to confront childhood demons, but little more is known about the flick than that. There’s no casting news on the girl, but Clive Owen will play her father, while Inglrourious Basterds star Daniel Bruhl has also signed up for an as yet unspecified role.
Production on the movie scheduled to begin in June in London and Madrid.
