Daniel Grao is bringing the mystery…
Disney+ has teamed up with Beta Film and Morena Films on an adaptation of young adult mystery novel franchise The Invisible Girl, starring the 46-year-old Spanish actor.
The series is based on a trilogy of YA books from Blue Jeans, with Spanish producer Moreno leading on production and Beta taking international rights, bar the U.S., Asia-Pacific and Iberia.
Grao and Zoe Stein have landed the leads, playing a father and daughter involved in the investigation of a murdered teenage girl in the picturesque fictional town of Cárdena, set in Andalusia, in what’s billed as an “atmospheric thriller.”
The two are forced to put their differences aside and to succumb their tense relationship in order to solve the murder case rocking a supposedly peaceful town, where all inhabitants are suspects.
Tito López Amado and Aritz Moreno are directing, with a writing team including Carmen López-Areal, Marina Efron, Antonio Hernández Centeno, Ramón Tarrés, and Ian de la Rosa.
Pedro Uriol, executive producer at Morena Films said: “The Invisible Girl will surprise both fans of the novel and those who do not know the story yet. The young-adult thriller is mysterious and exciting with a sensational cast and a purely cinematic look. Father and daughter need to overcome their differences to solve a murder case that has shaken the peaceful lives of the inhabitants of Cárdena; it is a character-driven story which will captivate viewers visually and emotionally.”
