Toronto: Filmax Nabs World Rights to ‘In Darkness We Fall’

Filmax Acquires World Rights to 'In

Morena Films produces Alfredo Montero’s survival thriller

Dipping into Spain’s seemingly bottomless well of genre talent, Spanish specialist Filmax has acquired world sales rights to Alfredo Montero’s “In Darkness We Fall.”

The cave-set survival thriller is co-written by Montero and Javier Gullon, who penned “The King of the Mountain,” a Weinstein Co. U.S. pick-up, and Denis Villeneuve’s “Enemy,” which screens at Toronto.

Morena Films (Steven Soderbergh’s “Che,” Oliver Stone’s “Comandante”) produces.

Pic marks a move from found-footage to more docu-style genre movies — focusing the depravity of human nature.

Lensed on the Mediterranean island of Formentera, the remake of Montero’s Sitges-screened “La cueva” follows five friends – three guys, two girls – trapped deep inside a cave, with a friend shooting everything on video.

“It’s far more interesting to confront the fears and limits of human beings as they confront one other then record their confrontation with a supernatural phenomenon,” said producer Juan Gordon.

“At one point in our lives, we’ve all been in a situation where we say: “I’ve got myself into a mess. How will I get out of this?’”
