Nava crawling with zombies

'Perros muertos' to shoot in October

Antonia Nava and Sagrario Santorum’s Nava Entertainment will produce zombie actioner “Perros muertos,” directed by Koldo Serra (“BackWoods”).

“Perros” has a petty criminal, Cocacolo, pulling a Barcelona bank job and fleeing south, just as a family leaves Northern Spain for holidays. The motley group join together in the Spanish countryside to battle a zombie outbreak sparked by the locals’ consumption of adulterated rapeseed oil.

Shooting in October, “Perros” will be co-produced by Serra’s Basque label Arsenico. Screenplay is by Serra and Carlos Garcia Miranda, a scribe on hit Spanish skein “The Boarding School.”

Budget is around E3.5 million ($4.8 million), said Nava.

Like Sundance hit “Buried,” “Perros” is from a young Spanish director who caught attention with a genre film. Serra’s “BackWoods” was a rednecks vs. tourists faceoff toplining Gary Oldman.

The Spanish touches will merely heighten the film’s originality in an international market, said Nava.

“Films which are good and ‘genuine’ sell well internationally,” said Nava, who added that the cast will largely feature young Spanish TV stars.

A screenplay is completed. Nava Entertainment aims to structure the film as a minority Mexican co-prod.

Nava formerly headed international co-productions at Barcelona’s Filmax, producing Brad Anderson’s “The Machinist” and “Transsiberian,” Jaume Balaguero’s “Fragile” and “BackWoods.”

A former exec at In Vitro Films, Santorum has a financial grounding in tax-break systems in Spain, Colombia, Mexico and Brazil.
