$25 million horror pic to shoot March 2010

David Slade, who’s just been tapped to direct “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” is attached to helm “Cold Skin” for Madrid and Paris-based Kanzaman.

An Antarctic island-set horror/psychological thriller, “Skin” adapts Albert Sanchez Pinol’s bestselling Spanish novel of the same title. Jesus Olmo penned the script.

“Skin” will be produced by Denise O’Dell and Mark Albela, partners at Kanzaman.

International rights for “Skin” will be handled by 6 Sales, which will represent the film at the Cannes market next month.

“David was always our first choice for ‘Cold Skin’ because he knows how to handle the psychological horror, and he’s CG savvy as well,” O’Dell said.

“Skin” is skedded to shoot in March. Budget for the f/x-heavy pic is pegged around $25 million.

Slade’s credits include 2006’s “Hard Candy” and 2007’s “30 Days of Night.”Kanzaman produced Milos Forman’s “Goya’s Ghosts” and co-produced soon-to-bow Nia Vardalos starrer “My Life in Ruins.”

Olmo co-wrote Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s “28 Weeks Later.”
