[Now updated with more info on the new [REC] films and Balaguero's next.] With the U.S. release of the excellent [REC] 2 looming (and this time going [albeit limited] theatrical), the idea of a third film in the series doesn’t seem so far fetched, and now it isn’t- as Filmax has officially confirmed two more films in the franchise. Read on for more info!
Twitch is reporting that the Filmax offices were displaying new [REC] artwork at the European Film Market and they’ve announced that the duo behind the films, Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza will be taking on the sequels separately with each filmmaker helming one. Given how awesome [REC] 2 is, this could be really exciting, or by splitting them up, could take some magic away.
UPDATE: Twitch spoke to Balaguero concering the films and he revealed that Paco Plaza will actually be directing a prequel entitled [REC] GENESIS while Balaguero will be helming the series' final installment, [REC] APOCALYPSE. Check out their story here.
Before Jaume Balaguero does another [REC] however, the director is going to helm SLEEP TIGHT, formerly titled FLATMATE.
Balaguero announced that SLEEP TIGHT will be his next project. Here’s the synopsis:
"Marcos works as a doorman in a Barcelona apartment building. Happiness eludes him and he feels the need to reaffirm his reasons for living on a daily basis. He goes about his day-to-day work mainly unnoticed by the residents of the building, but he pays close attention to them. He knows all the intimate details of their lives, especially one of them. Clara King is a happy-go-lucky young woman who always looks on the positive side of things. Her cheery attitude to life makes Marcos’ skin crawl. He won’t be happy until he has wiped that smile off her face once and for all, because Marcos feeds off other people’s pain. He delights in the unhappiness and anguish of others and he loves nothing more than to plant the seed of misery and watch it grow. In Clara he has found the perfect target, and he will go to extreme lengths to make her life miserable. But Marcos is starting to get a bit too cocky, and soon his carefully thought out plans will start to unravel... Luckily for him, he has one last ace up his sleeve."
