Universal lands Owen for ‘Intruders’

It's the latest low-risk, multi-national film project

Universal is putting out the welcome mat for the Clive Owen starrer “The Intruders.”

The $20 million-budgeted pic, which will be helmed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, represents the type of low-risk multi-national projects that are increasingly attractive to the majors. The English-language thriller, which will be financed by Spanish media company Antena 3 and Universal Pictures Intl., boasts a pan-European cast with Owen and Daniel Bruhl (“Inglourious Basterds”) as well as a Spanish helmer.

Based on a script by Jaime Marques and Spanish novelist Nico Casariego, “Intruders” centers on an 11-year-old girl who is forced to confront childhood demons.

Enrique Lopez Lavigne, longtime producing partner of Fresnadillo, is producing through his Madrid-based Apaches Entertainment. Apache’s Belen Atienza will also produce.

UPI will distribute “Intruders” internationally. UTA, which reps Fresnadillo, Marquez and Apaches Entertainment, is handling North American distribution rights to the film, which begins lensing in June.
