Leigh joins ‘Machinist’ thriller

Filmax to finance pic

Jennifer Jason Leigh and Spanish thesp Aitana Sanchez-Gijon (“A Walk in the Clouds”) will co-star with Christian Bale in the psychological suspense thriller “The Machinist,” to be directed by Brad Anderson (“Next Stop Wonderland”) and produced by Julio Fernandez for Filmax Ent.

Pic is 100% financed by Filmax, the Barcelona-based production, distribution and exhibition company.

It will begin shooting this month in Barcelona, using a Spanish crew including d.p. Charlie Jimenez (“Intacto”).

Filmax Intl. will handle overseas sales on the project, which forms part of the top-end production line at Filmax. Film is about an insomniac lathe operator, haunted by a ghostly figure he sees in a factory.

The Barcelona mini-studio just announced four projects at its Fantastic Factory genre label: the Brian Yuzna-directed “Rottweiler,” ghost story “Beneath Still Waters,” chiller “The Nun” and period werewolf pic, “The Werewolf Hunt.”
