[Rec] Director Takes on “Damned Friday”

Jason McDonald 7 Comments Movie Page: Damned Friday

The co-director of the [Rec] series is set to strike out on his own for a new project centered on the world of vampires.

Variety is reporting that Paco Plaza is teaming up with his [Rec]3 star, Leticia Dolera, to work on a movie based on a mock trailer he created that then became a comic series. The project is called “Damned Friday” and will star Leticia as a woman struggling with her family, her boyfriend, and with becoming a vampire.  If that sounds a little “Twilight”-ish to you, keep in mind, this is Paco Plaza we’re talking about here.

Producer Adrian Guerra describes the project as a “Black Swan’-style drama applied to the vampire genre with a really strong central female character taking the audience on a gritty, emotional roller coaster.”

Plaza went on to add that “I’ve shot a werewolf movie, a bunch of zombie films, but as a horror film fan, I felt I really wanted to shoot a vampire film. There’s only one thing I can say for sure: there will be blood.”

Like Plaza’s other works, this project will be shot in Spain and will be a foreign language film.  If you haven’t seen the original mock teaser trailer that inspired so much interest, I’ve included it down below.

        LOVED REC and REC2 but for me they ruined it with REC3, I watched Sleep Tight a few days ago and that was a brilliant little thriller, so I would be well up for this….anything other than emo vamps is fine with me!!
