Elena Anaya toplines ‘Inertia’

Actress joins Isaac on Collet-Serra production

MADRID — Spain’s Elena Anaya (“The Skin I Live In”) will play the femme lead in action-thriller “Inertia,” which is directed by Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego (“Apollo 18,” “King of the Hill”).

Spain’s Roxbury Pictures and Jaume Collet-Serra’s L.A.-based Ombra Films produce.

Oscar Isaac (“Inside Llewyn Davis”) stars in “Inertia” as an immigrant who witnesses a fatal hit-and-run and pursues the mysterious car in a non-stop chase. Anaya limns his ex g.f. Their predicament rekindles the relationship, said Roxbury’s Miguel Angel Faura.

From a screenplay by Lopez-Gallego and regular co-scribe Fernando Navarro, mainly Spanish-language “Inertia” shoots from late August in Barcelona, Aragon and Andalusia, Faura added.

Film Factory has already closed a brace of major territory pre-sales on the pic.

Now recognized as one of Spain’s foremost actresses after her star turn in Pedro Almodovar’s “The Skin I Live In,” Anaya broke through to international attention with 2004’s “Van Helsing.” She also played in “Savage Grace” and “Cairo Time,” and took notable roles in two of France’s highest-profile action-thrillers of late, testosterone gangster bio “Mesrine” and full-on actioner “Point Blank.”

Anaya will topline Beatriz Sanchis’ “Todos estan muertos,”and is also in negotiations to star in the Sigma-produced “Swung,” helmed by Colin Kennedy, and to feature in Rain Li’s love story “Geography of the Hapless Heart.”

Anaya is represented by CAA’s Hylda Queally and Katrina Bayonas at Kuranda Management.
