ROTTWEILER & FANTASTIC FACTORY UPDATES
Fango has learned that Brian Yuzna and Julio Fern?ez?s Fantastic Factory arm of Filmax International is forging ahead with its slate of new horror films, with ROTTWEILER slated to start shooting this month. Brian Yuzna directs this story (based on Alberto V?uez Figueroa?s novel) of a group of thrill-seeking teenagers terrorized by the titular canine, one bearing ?fangs and jaws of steel and a single-minded bloodlust. Reinforced with modern technology and possessed of an ancient evil that will not die.? Paul Naschy stars as the murderous dog?s owner, and the script was written by Miguel (BEYOND RE-ANIMATOR) Tejada-Flores and Angel Sala. The latter is the president of Spain?s famed Sitges Film Festival, making his scriptwriting debut; Sala is also adapting BENEATH STILL WATERS, based on Matthew Costello?s novel about a long-flooded town inhabited by a deadly supernatural presence, for producers Yuzna and Fern?ez. Both these movies, along with Fantastic Factory?s recently completed, Paco Plaza-directed werewolf film ROMASANTA, will be released in the U.S. by Lions Gate.
