Filmmaker Hernán Findling (co-producer of Albert Pyun’s LEFT FOR DEAD) got in touch with Fango to give word on his latest directorial project, BREAKING NIKKI. Written by Findling, screenwriter/Fango correspondent Nicanor Loreti and German (DYING GOD) Val, the soon-to-shoot flick is likened by the director to the works of “David Lynch and Lucio Fulci,” and he promises Fango it’ll be “really, really bloody.”

Scheduled to shoot from January 1-February 10 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the low-budget shocker will be produced by 1971cine, with a cast headed by hotties Mariana Seligmann and Victoria Maurette and actor Oliver Kolker (all returning from LEFT FOR DEAD). Findling says of the grim premise, “Devon and David are brothers and share a dark secret, one that lies deep within the walls of the house they live in, and involves two kidnapped women, a basement and a scalpel.”

Brutal territory by description, certainly, though Findling says there’s a definite psychological element involved as well. “The line between reality and nightmarish images will disappear little by little as days go by,” he explains. “In the basement lies Susan, Devon’s soon-to-be-ex-wife who has been kidnapped by the duo, as well as Nikki, a prostitute Devon has a really, really dark plan for. When David starts developing a fixation on Nikki, things really start going out of control, until the bloody, nightmarish and violent ending.”

Co-scripter Loreti tells Fango that when he read Val’s BREAKING NIKKI treatment, “I thought it would make for an amazing blend of a horror story and a character piece. It’s really twisted, original and extreme, and what's more important, it focuses on the dark side of human nature—what we can be capable of if we surrender to that side. Since German and I have an amazing writing chemistry, we gave Hernán the treatment, and he asked us to make it into a full screenplay for him to direct.”

“We checked out a few films with similar themes, in this case obsession and personality disorders,” Findling adds. “That way, we knew what would work and what wouldn’t with this kind of storyline.” Following a plethora of brainstorming sessions, the trio sat down to craft the script organically. “We worked from the treatment and made stuff up in the moment. Basically, that’s how it went until the draft was complete.”

LEFT FOR DEAD’s Alejandro Millán and CHRONICLE OF THE RAVEN director Daniel de la Vega have been tasked with the cinematography, while FX company Rabbit Inc. will handle “the copious gore,” according to Findling. Conceptual art will be coming our way soon, so stay tuned to Fango for further word on BREAKING NIKKI in the coming weeks.
