Saeta backs ‘Sylvia’

Lopez de Ayala in talks for lead role

Barcelona-based shingle Eddie Saeta will produce “En la ciudad de Sylvia,” the next film by Jose Luis Guerin, one of Spain’s most admired auteurs.

The production house is in talks with Pilar Lopez de Ayala (“Mad Love”) to take one of the lead roles, Eddie Saeta producer Luis Minarro said.

“Honor de cavalleria,” which Minarro co-produced, plays in Directors Fortnight. With overtones of “Vertigo” and very little dialogue, “Ciudad” concerns a man who returns to Strasbourg to try to track down a woman he met four years earlier. As he strolls through Strasbourg, he discovers the city.

Pic will roll in August, with exteriors shot in Strasbourg, for delivery early 2007.

In a predominantly issuedriven Spanish cinema, Guerin is one of Spain’s few directors who explores film form. His latest pic, 2001’s “En construccion,” chronicling the construction of a new apartment block in Barcelona’s old quarter, made €692,651 ($858,887) in Spain, an extraordinary gross for a documentary.
