BARCELONA — Spanish writer-helmers Luis Piedrahita and Rodrigo Sopena (“Fermat’s Room”) are set to direct their sophomore feature, bank-heist thriller “Golpe de efecto.”

The $4.1 million-budgeted “Golpe” will be produced by Notro Films, part of Spain’s Vertice 360 film and TV holding. Pic is being structured as a European co-production, according to Manuel Monzon, Notro’s head of international co-productions.

Action begins when a bank employee gets a phone call telling him to visit a Web page. There he sees his gagged wife being threatened by unidentified strangers. To save her, he must cooperate secretly with a gang of bank robbers. Pic is casting and set to roll in the spring.
