Extraterrestre Landing this March, While Steve Zaillian Commits Timecrimes
Nacho Vigalondo Double Feature : In his new movie Extraterrestre even more aliens are trying to invade Earth, but this time the spanish are way too busy with problems of their own
Meanwhile the american remake of Vigalondo’s debut Time Crimes has been moved from United Artists to DreamWorks by Steve Zaillian (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) , who will produce and rewrite the script of the lowbudget timetravel flick, and according to Zaillian the remake shouldn’t break the piggy bank either.
” We have to cast it, but it’s a tricky one, because I want to make it really low budget. I don’t want to do a really big budgeted film for that. I think part of its appeal is that it’s kind of a low budget thriller, but it’s even hard to get that made without a major actor, so the trick is to find the right actor that doesn’t suddenly push the budget up into the 20s or 30s. I’d like to make it for 10 million bucks. You look at it and it’s one of the rare opportunities where you have four characters, two locations, why do you need to spend $40 million dollars? This is a gift, this is a story that you wouldn’t want to tell any differently, and it happens to be an economical way to go.”
