AFM: Elliot Cowan, Ana Ularu, Franka Potente Set for Jaume Balaguero’s English-Language ‘Muse’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Filmax lead produces the supernatural thriller from “[REC]” director

Elliot Cowan , Ana Ularu and Franka Potente will star in supernatural thriller “Muse,” from “[REC]” co-director Jaume Balaguero.

Charlotte Vega, Christopher Lloyd, Leonor Watling, and Joanne Whalley complete key cast on “Muse,” a flagship title on Filmax Intl.’s 2016 AFM slate. Barcelona’s Filmax Entertainment, Balaguero’s career-long producer, produces, along with Ireland’s Fantastic Films, France’s The Jokers Films and Belgium’s Frakas Prods.

“Muse” marks Balaguero’s return to English-language genre filmmaking 14 years after his thriller “Darkness,” a Miramax/Dimension release, broke out to $22.2 million at the U.S. box office. It also represents the first post-“[REC]” movie from Balaguero, who, beyond 2011’s hiatus “Sleep Tight,” spent a decade on the four-movie saga of “[REC],” which has grossed theatrically near $60 million worldwide.

“Muse” turns on Salomon, off work since his girlfriend’s tragic death and suffering a recurring nightmare of a woman’s brutal murder. When the very same woman is found dead in reality, Salomon, seeking explanations, plunges into a appalling world controlled by figures who have inspired throughout history, the Muses.

Carlos and Laura Fernandez, Brendan McCarthy, Jean-Yves Roubin and Manuel Chiche produce.

“The combination of the supernatural, seduction, macabre rituals, and love is an explosive one and has all the elements required to make a truly terrifying movie,” Balaguero said.

“‘Muse’s’ mix of psychological horror and the supernatural make it a perfect genre film for theatrical release; however, it also has great potential for TV,” added Ivan Diaz, Filmax Intl. sales head.

“Muse” is scheduled for delivery in the third quarter of 2017.
