Jaume BalaguerÃ³ and Paco Plaza, the Spanish writing-directing team behind Rec, spoke rather frankly to Fangoria about Screen Gems’ remake Quarantine.
It is a horror film,” BalaguerÃ³ tells the site. “What they’re trying to do is turn a film that could very well be successful on the art-house circuit, even if subtitled, into one that could potentially be successful as a mainstream, teen-oriented movie. Which is, by the way, the same market that doesn’t like reading at the movies in Spain.”
The pair touch on comparisons to Cloverfield and Hollywood’s lack of originality. For the full story, click here.
BalaguerÃ³ and Plaza are currently prepping a sequel Rec. According to them, shooting on the follow-up will begin well after Quarantine‘s release.
