Green light for Full Time Films’ hor­ror-love story

Cannes Market News - - NEWS -

FULL TIME FILMS’ post-apoc­a­lyp­tic film has the green light and be­gins film­ing in Spain in Au­gust. Pro­duced by Xavier Gens, di­rec­tor of it marks the di­rec­to­rial de­but of Matthieu Turi, who has writ­ten the screen­play. Turi has served as as­sis­tant di­rec­tor on a num­ber of ma­jor movies in­clud­ing and Af­ter a world­wide epi­demic, most of the planet’s pop­u­la­tion has been killed. Only a few thou­sand have sur­vived and are strug­gling to find food and shel­ter. But they are not alone: strange crea­tures are seen in the city at night hunt­ing for hu­mans. So, for safety, hu­man sur­vivors de­cide to set up camps in the desert land­scape out­side the city where they set­tle at night, re­turn­ing by car in day­light for sup­plies. On her way back to camp one day, a young woman, Juli­ette, loses con­trol and ends up trapped in her car with a bro­ken leg in the mid­dle of the night. Out­side the car some­thing is on the prowl… “The film has two time­lines,” Turi said. “One is set in the past and fol­lows a lov­ing re­la­tion­ship be­tween Juli­ette

and Jack “The other tells of the hor­rors that Juli­ette and her fel­low sur­vivors are liv­ing now.” Juli­ette has had a hard life and is tough, and mem­o­ries of her happy life with Jack help her to deal with her or­deal. “So there’s a love story and a hor­ror story, but it’s not a typ­i­cal hor­ror story – I’m not a fan of jump scares,” Turi said. The film is set to shoot in Spain, New York and pos­si­bly Morocco. Fi­nance is from Full Time Films and pri­vate in­vestors, with a Bel­gian co-pro­ducer pos­si­bly join­ing the pro­duc­tion. Re­lease is set for 2017. JN
