Rodar y Rodar put ‘Nine’ in Morgue

Producer pair team up on Mikkelsen, Keitel starrer

Rodar y Rodar, which produced “The Orphanage” and “Julia’s Eyes” with Guillermo del Toro, is teaming with Canada’s Rue Morgue Cinema on “Cut Throats Nine.”

Pic retools 1972 cult Spanish horror western “Condenados a vivir.” Cast includes Mads Mikkelsen, Harvey Keitel and Roy Dupuis.

It’s the feature debut of Rodrigo Gudino, the founder of horror magazine Rue Morgue, dubbed “the best damn magazine in the genre” by del Toro.

Screenplay is by Gudino and Joe O’Brien. Producers are Rue Morgue’s Marco Pecota and Rodar y Rodar’s Joaquin Padro and Mar Targarona.

Shooting in early 2011, “Cut Throats” will lense in Canada with post-production in Barcelona.

The action is set in 1892 in the American west where a wagonload of murderous convicts is attacked by bandits. Only seven survive, along with a sergeant (Mikkelsen) and his beautiful young daughter.

Stumbling toward its destination, the convoy degenerates into savagery, with survivors being choked, stabbed, shot and burned.

“The violence is stylized, Tarantino-style,” Padro told Variety. Rodar y Rodar will put up “significant financing,” he added. Gudino says pic “pushes the subdued excesses of Sergio Leone and Tobe Hooper into creative new territory.” Rodar y Rodar’s “Julia Eyes” is in post and is sold at Cannes by DeAPlaneta. It’s co-produced by del Toro, Universal Pictures Intl. and Antena 3.
