'Play' to shoot in the U.S.
Spanish director Vicente Penarrocha, whose “Guantanamero” (aka “Arritmia”) world preems before AFM buyers in Santa Monica today, will produce his next two films via Madrid-based Visionaire. First pic is the English-language “Play,” which concerns a 20-year-old ad agency writer who has visions after playing a vidgame.
Written by Penarrocha, film will shoot in the U.S. in English with an American cast.
Penarrocha and Visionaire are discussing several ideas for a second pic.
Visionaire has also signed Norberto Lopez Amado to direct “The Music Page,” a contempo thriller turning on the lost last page of Mozart’s “Requiem.”
Visionaire was set up in February when Juan Romero’s Suki Films merged with Sarah Halioua’s Finales Felices. Ex-Telespan honcho Jose Herrero joined as the third partner.
