Strong, Cox, Farmiga enter ‘Mindscape’

Studiocanal, Ombra set dates for first collaboration

LYON, France

Mark Strong (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”), Brian Cox (“The Bourne Supremacy”) and Taissa Farmiga (“American Horror Story”) will star in Spanish helmer Jorge Dorado’s “Mindscape.”

“Mindscape” is the first English-language film to roll under the production-financing-sales alliance between Jaume Collet-Serra’s Los Angeles-based Ombra Films and European major Studiocanal. Warner Bros. distributes in Spain.

“Mindscape” turns on a man with the ability to enter people’s memories. He takes on a girl’s case to discover whether she is a brilliant sociopath or traumatized teen.

Collet-Serra and his Ombra partner Juan Sola produce; Peter Safran and Spain’s Antena 3 Films also produce, in association with Miguel Angel Faura’s Barcelona-based Roxbury Films.

Following a now tried-and-tested model, Studiocanal will finance and handle international sales.

“Mindscape” is co-financed by Catalan pubcaster TVC and Canal Plus Spain.

Ombra aims to produce low-budget English-language horror and fantasy movies, tapping Spain’s genre directors and technical artistry, Catalan-born Collet-Serra’s Hollywood links and the financing and sales muscle of Studiocanal.

“Mindscape” is the feature debut of Dorado, best-known for one seg in 2007’s multi-part “Limonchello.”
