Filmax on the brink of ‘Oblivion’

First-timer Cerda to helm horror/fantasy pic

LONDON — Following the sales success of Jaume Balaguero’s “Darkness,” Spanish mini-major the Filmax Group has added another English-language horror pic to its production slate.

To shoot in the summer of 2002, “Oblivion” will be directed by first time helmer Nacho Cerda. Pic turns on a man who lives in an idyllic country village but who discovers one day that parts of his life have been falsified.

“Oblivion” is included in Filmax’s Fantastic Discovery label, a production line dedicated to first-time fantasy pic helmers.

Cerda won multiple prizes for his two shorts “Genesis” and “Aftermath.”

Although “Oblivion” will be presented to buyers, Filmax’s main sales thrust at the London Screenings is closing outstanding major territories on “Darkness,” which are now limited to Germany, Italy and Scandinavia.
