BALAGUERO DIRECTING FRAGILE
Variety reports that Spanish director Jaume (THE NAMELESS) Balaguer?ll write and direct the ghost story FRAGILE for the busy Filmax production company. The script will be set on the Isle of Man off the coast of England, and center on a Victorian hospital which is slated to close down. A nurse arrives to help transfer the patients to the mainland, and that?s when the spooky stuff begins. Like Balaguer?previous film DARKNESS, this one will be shot in English, with an international cast yet to be determined and a budget higher than DARKNESS? $12 million, making it one of Spain?s biggest productions this year. Production will begin in spring 2004; the film will be offered for presales in Cannes.
