It’s an extra special Blanco Christmas for Juan Carlos Fresnadillo…
Cinemax has given a pilot greenlight to Blanco, a drama pilot project to be directed by the 45-year-old Spanish filmmaker.
The project, which stars Shiloh Fernandez centers on Ruben (portrayed by Fernandez), an uptown gangster — nicknamed Blanco for being a light-skinned Dominican — who uses his status as a confidential informant to turn the tables on law enforcement and build his criminal empire.
Written by Mark Rosner, Blanco hails from 20th Century Fox Television Studios and Lakeshore Entertainment.
Fresnadillo’s credits include directing 28 Weeks Later and Intacto, which earned him a Goya Award for Best New Director in 2002.
