Alex and David Pastor are flying high…
The Spanish sibling screenwriters/filmmakers will pen and direct a Spanish-language spinoff of Netflix’s Bird Box.
The film will reunite Netflix with Bird Box producers Dylan Clark and Chris Morgan, but it will also have a distinctly Spanish flavor.
The Pastor brothers are best known for 2020 Netflix thriller The Occupant and 2009 pandemic thriller Carriers, as well as Syfy series Incorporated and recent HBO Max series The Head, both of which they created.
The yet to be titled film, which will sit within David Kosse’s local-language slate at the streamer, is due to start production towards the end of this year in Spain. Cast has yet to be set.
This could be the first of multiple local-language Bird Box spinoffs.
Post-apocalyptic thriller Bird Box was a massive hit for Netflix in 2018. Sandra Bullock starred as a mother who tries to protect herself and two children from entities which push people who look at them to suicide. According to the streamer, the film was watched by 89 million households over its first four weeks of release, the second-most ever for one of their original films.
