You may remember Bird Box, one of Netflix’s first blockbuster movies with nearly 90 million views in its first 28 days.
The 2018 thriller saw Sandra Bullock play a mother tasked with guiding her children through a post-apocalyptic world filled with entities that would kill anyone who watched them by suicide. Now there is a new entry to this universe on the way.
The deadline reports that the cast for the Spanish-language spin-off has been set, along with some story details.
Mario Casas (Los 33), Georgina Campbell (Black Mirror), Diego Calva (Narcos: Mexico) and Alejandra Howard (Fatima) will be joined by a larger Spanish cast including Naila Schuberth, Patrick Criado, Celia Freijeiro, Lola Dueñas, Gonzalo de Castro, Michelle Jenner and Leonardo Sbaraglia.
According to the report, the film will be set primarily in Barcelona and appears to follow a similar route to the original.
“Sebastian and his young daughter Anna must lead their own survival journey through the desolate streets of Barcelona,” the synopsis read. “But as they form a difficult alliance with other survivors and make their way to a safe haven, a threat more sinister than unseen creatures grow.”
Bird Box producers Dylan Clark and Chris Morgan are back to maintain ties to the bigger franchise, while Spanish duo Alex and David Pastor are writing the film. No director has been reached yet and no release date has been set. Watch this place.
