Jorge Dorado’s future looks bright in Hollywood…
The 36-year-old Spanish filmmaker and emerging talent signed on with noted talent agency William Morris Endeavor (WME) during this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
Dorado, who began his career working as an assistant director with the likes of Pedro Almodóvar, Baz Luhrmann and Guillermo del Toro, made his feature directing debut with the psychological thriller Mindscape for Studio Canal.
The film, starring Mark Strong, Brian Cox and Taissa Farmiga, centers on a detective with the ability to enter peoples’ memories (Strong) who takes on the case of a brilliant, troubled, but dangerous 16-year-old girl, Anna (Farmiga), to determine if she’s a sociopath or a victim of trauma.
The film is scheduled for a fall 2013 release.
Dorado has directed several award-winning shorts including the Goya Award-nominated La guerra, which won 47 awards at festivals throughout the world.
