‘Last Days’ for Pastor brothers

Spain's Morena, Rebelion produce apocalyptic thriller

Spanish powerhouse Morena Films is joining forces with Barcelona-based Rebelion Terrestre to produce apocalyptic thriller “The Last Days,” the sophomore feature from writer-director brothers Alex and David Pastor (“Carriers”).

“Last Days” is set in 2013 as a mysterious form of agoraphobia spreads around the world, trapping the entire population indoors.

As chaos descends on Barcelona, a man finds himself separated from his pregnant girlfriend and must fight his way across the city to save her and their baby.

Produced by Morena’s Pedro Uriol and Rebelion’s Alberto Marini, “Days” is budgeted at €5.5 million ($7.9 million) and is being packaged.

A Spanish-language shoot is planned from November.

The Pastors return to their hometown of Barcelona after a stint in the U.S. on pandemic thriller “Carriers,” toplining Chris Pine and Piper Perabo. Pic was released by Paramount Vantage.

In 2009 Morena Films co-produced Daniel Monzon’s prison thriller “Cell 211,” nabbing $18.9 million at the local box office.

A long-time exec producer at Filmax, Marini’s credits include zombie horror franchise “[REC]” and Jaume Balaguero’s upcoming psychological thriller, “Sleep Tight.”

“The Pastors are skilled at screenwriting and construct meticulously drawn movie characters, making their desperation very recognizable for audiences,” said Uriol.”Days” will be ready for delivery fall 2012. Cast and international sales agent have yet to be announced.
