Cannes: Film Factory Takes Oriol Paulo’s ‘The Invisible Guest’

Suspense thriller a Warner Bros. release in Spain.

Backed by Warner Bros. and a combo of top-notch Spanish producers, Orio Paulo is set to direct suspense thriller “The Invisible Guest,” his follow-up to 2012 box office hit “The Body.”

Film Factory Entertainment has acquired worldwide rights to “The Invisible Guest” and will introduce it to buyers at Cannes.

With principal photography scheduled for September, Warner Bros. will release “Guest” in Spain in 2016.

Think Studio (“Three Many Weddings”), Atresmedia Cine (“Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” “Marshland”), Nostromo Pictures (“Buried”) and Colose Producciones produce.

Mario Casas, once a Spanish teen heartthrob who has grown into character parts,  stars with Barbara Lennie (Carlos Vermut’s “Magical Girl”). “Body” star Jose Coronado also toplines.

Also written by Paulo, “The Invisible Guest” turns on a young businessman who wakes up in a hotel room locked from the inside with the dead body of his lover next to him. He hires a prestigious lawyer, and over one night they work together to clarify what happened in a frenetic race against time.

“Oriol Paulo is an incredibly talented storyteller and director and this film should take him one step further in his international career,” said Film Factory’s Vicente Canales.
