Nava, Vertice partner on ‘Dead Perros’

Nava to produce zombie actioner with Vertice subsid Telespan

Spanish producer Antonia Nava has inked with Telespan 2000 to produce €4 million ($5.6 million) zombie actioner “Dead perros,” to be helmed by Koldo Serra (“Backwoods”).

Nava’s Barcelona-based Nava Entertainment will produce with Telespan 2000 and Serra’s Basque shingle Sayaka Prods., which is a subsid of Arsenico Prods. Nava will exec produce.

Telespan 2000 is a production subsid of Spanish media-facilities holding company Vertice 360, which has acquired Spanish distrib rights. Vertice Sales will handle international distribution.

In “Perros,” a teen gangster flees south with his gang after a Barcelona bank heist. Double-crossed and abandoned in the middle of nowhere, he joins forces with a family to battle a zombie outbreak, sparked by the locals’ consumption of adulterated rapeseed oil.

Serra co-wrote “Perros” with Carlos Garcia Miranda, who penned hit TV skein “El internado.” Pic stars Spanish heartthrob Hugo Silva.

A teaser will unspool at the Catalan Screenings in Paris, which runs Thursday and Friday.

Nava said “Perros” plays like “From Dusk Till Dawn” meets Spanish B-movies — especially the 1970s-80s sub-genre of “quinqui” movies, featuring teen mop-haired, drug-addled criminals.

Nava was previously director of international at Spanish production-distrib Filmax

Her exec producer credits include Brad Anderson’s “The Machinist” and “Transsiberian,” Jaume Balaguero’s “Fragile” and “Backwoods.”
