Paco Plaza To Direct DAMNED FRIDAY In Spain

Carwyn Jones, Contributing Writer
News from Berlin's EFM is that one-half of the directing team of the [REC] franchise, Paco Plaza, will helm Damned Friday (Maldito Viernes) later this year.  Plaza has written it and already teased his fans in 2008 with the release of a mock trailer on YouTube that you can see below. Leticia Dolera, who plays the crazed bride in [REC]3, will star.

Adrian Guerra's Nostromo Pictures will produce with Spanish sales agent Film Factory apparently due to share the screenplay and design while still in Berlin.  According to the Variety exclusive, the project is already fully financed and will be the first time Guerra will produce a non-English language film.  

Plaza promises just one thing when shooting begins in July, "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."

Meanwhile [REC]4: Apocalypse, directed by Jaume Balegueró, is due out sometime this year.  See Shelagh M. Rowan-Legg's piece and footage from the set in August last year and also the poster and Todd Brown's news in May 2013.
