Welch, Robinet target ‘Paris’

K5 to sell horror anthology at AFM

Forget those romantic cinematic odes to famous cities.

Darryn Welch’s Berlin-based Instinctive Film and Mathieu Robinet of French shingle Reverence are injecting chills into the mix with “Paris I’ll Kill You,” a horror anthology that turns the city of love into the city of death.

London and Munich-based K5 Intl. is handling world sales. K5, which will soon be opening an L.A. office, will pre-sell “Paris I’ll Kill You” at the upcoming AFM.

Instinctive’s Chris Ouwinga is exec producing alongside K5’s Oliver Simon, Daniel Baur and Carl Clifton.

Set to lense next spring in Paris, the film comprises 10 story segments from horror-thriller and action directors, including Joe Dante, Xavier Gens (“Hitman” ), Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (“A l’interieur”), Ryuhei Kitamura (“Midnight Meat Train”), Vincenzo Natali (“Splice”), Paco Plaza (“[Rec]” ), Christopher Smith (“Black Death”) and Jorn Heitmann, who’s helmed videos for Rammstein and Tokio Hotel.

Offering a twisted look at Paris and its seedy underbelly, the interconnected stories span the gamut of the genre, from fantasy and suspense to horror.

“The stars of this show are the directors,” said Welch, adding that the project has received tremendous response from helmers eager to collaborate.

“It’s something fresh and something they can really sink their teeth into; it’s also a true fanboy project.”

Clifton described the project as a franchise-in-the-making: “Today Paris, tomorrow New York, Moscow, London.”
