France’s Luminor, Russia’s CTB and Romania’s Libra Film are set to co-produce Cannibal, a suspense thriller from Manuel Martin Cuenca (The Weakness of the Bolshevik, Half of Oscar) set up at Spain’s Mod Producciones (Agora, Biutiful, Fin) and Martin Cuenca’s label, La Loma Blanca, reports Variety.
Also written by Martin Cuenca and long-time co-scribe Alejandro Hernandez, Cannibal turns on Carlos (played by Antonio de la Torre), Granada’s most prestigious tailor, a respected man who dedicates his life to his work and eating, especially women. One day, he meets Nina, the twin-sister of a woman he’s eaten, an immigrant from Eastern Europe.
This sounds like an interesting cannibal flick. But something about that synopsis sounds like it could be some kind of drama with horror elements. Whatever the case it sounds interesting enough to check out. Principal photography is skedded for January in Granada.
