Euro thriller signs up crew to carry ‘Cargo’

Cast includes Mullan, Bruehl, Tosar

LONDON — Scottish actor Peter Mullan, German star Daniel Bruehl and Spanish thesp Luis Tosar have signed for the lead roles in “Cargo,” a Euro thriller that starts shooting next week in Barcelona.

Feature debut of documaker Clive Gordon sports an original screenplay by Paul Laverty, best known for his collaborations with Ken Loach.

Story concerns a young backpacker (Bruehl) traveling around Africa who gets into trouble with the police and stows away on a cargo ship to escape to Europe. The ship, which is smuggling illegal goods, is crewed by a bizarre bunch of no-hopers led by a captain played by Mullan. “Cargo” is a co-production of the U.K.’s Slate Films and Spain’s Morena Films, in association with Matador Films. Other co-producers include Oberan Cinematographica, Vaca Films and Swedish outfit Hepp Films, in association with Film i Vast.

Paris-based Wild Bunch is handling international sales, with DeAPlaneta distributing in Spain. Lensing starts Monday in Barcelona before moving to Accra, Ghana, in April.
