Having really dug [rec] 2 I'm eagerly looking forward to the two planned sequels which were just reported on today. Directors Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero will split directing duties on each film. I hope that doesn't break the formula. The two co-wrote the third film, [REC] Genesis, which is slated for Fall 2011 and has to do with the origins of the virus which only seems logical considering how #2 went. The fourth is slated for Fall 2012.

Now for something I've had my eye on for a while and another project being backed by Filmax.. Verbo, a reportedly fantasy/horror about a girl on a journey is supposed to be in post, and the first sales art appeared today which you can see to the right. Verbo is directed by Eduardo Chapero-Jackson and is supposedly based on one of his short films, although I'm having trouble verifying this with translation. Even better though, it's produced by Belén Atienza who did Hierro among others, along with Enrique López Lavign who worked on 28 Weeks Later. Yeah, I know 28 Weeks Later wasn't that great but the infected were still awesome.

The story follows Sara, a teenager who doesn't understand the world in which she lives. Only Liriko, a mysterious character who projects enigmatic messages across the city, seems to understand her. Her search for meaning in this often depressing world will lead her to a secret place, where she will embark on a great adventure towards life, or death. If she succeeds, Sara could finally be able to leave her mark on the world.

More as it comes!
