The writer and director team behind 'The Orphanage', Sergio Sanchez and Juan Antonio Bayona, are going to work together again for a new film.
Director Juan Antonio Bayona and screenwriter Sergio Sanchez, the two people behind "The Orphanage", are reuniting, Variety reported. The directing-writing pair are said to be re-teaming for what seems to be Bayona's next film, which is scheduled to be shot in spring 2010.
Variety further claimed that Bayona has spent months working on this film's screenplay and the visual design before he was approached to helm "Twilight" second sequel, "Eclipse". Sanchez, on the other hand, has completed a first-draft screenplay in late April.
The movie will be produced by Apaches Entertainment, Telecinco Cinema and Spongeman. Apaches' Belen Atienza described the yet-to-be-titled movie as a "powerful story, based on true facts, which poses large technical challenges," while Telecinco Cinema CEO Ghislain Barrois said that "the film looks absolutely unique."
Both Juan Antonio Bayona and Sergio Sanchez teamed up for the first time in "The Orphanage". For this 2007 Spanish horror movie, the two received critical acclaim as well as awards, including the 2008 Goya Award for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay.
