Luminor boards ‘Cannibal’

Film Factory takes rights to suspense thriller

MADRID

France’s Luminor, Russia’s CTB and Romania’s Libra Film are set to co-produce “Cannibal,” a suspense thriller from (“The Weakness of the Bolshevik”) set up at Spain’s Mod Prods. and helmer Manuel Martin Cuenca’s La Loma Blanca.

Luminor is the production subsidiary of Films Distribution.

Film Factory has acquired international rights and will introduce “Cannibal” at next week’s American Film Market.

Also written by Cuenca and longtime co-scribe Alejandro Hernandez, “Cannibal” turns on upscale tailor Carlos, a respected man in Granada, who dedicates his life to his work — and eating people, especially women. One day, he meets the twin-sister of a woman he’s devoured, an immigrant from Eastern Europe.

Antonio de la Torre, who played the husband of Penelope Cruz’s character in “Volver” and has reunited with Pedro Almodovar for “I’m So Excited,” will limn Carlos.

Principal photography is skedded for January in Granada.

“Cannibal” was first presented at the Paris Festival Different! then Paris Project. In 2012, it was selected for Rotterdam’s Cinemart and for the Cannes Festival’s Cinefondation Atelier workshop.

” ‘Cannibal’ perfectly suits our slate of quality films with great commercial potential, and it’s special and different,” said Film Factory CEO Vicente Canales.

“This is Hitchcock meets Bunuel,” said Mod partner Simon de Santiago.
