MADRID – Armand Assante (“Surveillance,” “Judge Dredd”) and Dina Meyer (“Starship Troopers”) are toplining “The Lost,” an English-lingo made-for produced by Manel Corbi’s Barcelona-based Drimtim Ent., which rolled July 10 in Barcelona.
Pic marks director Bryan Goeres’ fifth collaboration with Drimtim, Goeres having helmed “Face of Terror,” “Art Heist,” “Crusader” and “The Deal.”
“The Lost” is scripted by Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie.
While these were thriller-actioners, “The Lost” takes a more dramatic turn being a psychological thriller that turns on a American psychologist (Assante) turned bestselling writer who is forced to return to Barcelona to settle old scores. Meyer plays a past patient’s sister.
Focusing on dramas, “We are responding to the demands of the world market, which doesn’t mean we won’t return to action movies,” said Drimtim exec producer Manel Corbi.
He added that Drimtim aims to produce four-to-six made-fors a year.
Drimtim’s fourth made-for, “Clean Break,” starring Tara Reid, Colm Meaney, Angus MacFadyen, George Wendt and Lorena Bernal, is in post.
Continuing a financing formula used on all the made-fors, “The Lost” is co-produced by Spanish commercial broadcaster Antena 3 and Catalan pubcaster TV3-TVC. Sony Pictures Television International will handle international rights, Drimtim announced.
Further cast includes Catalans Sergi Mateu, Drimtim regular Abel Folk and Miquel Gelabert and Spaniard Jorge Bosch.
