Kidnapped Director, Sleep Tight Writer Team for I Will Die Tonight

Kidnapped solidified Miguel Angel Vivas as a “director to watch” for us.

Although his relentless home invasion flick brought nothing new to the table story-wise, it was tough as nails and packed plenty of style.  Now, it appears he’ll be reuniting with Kidnapped’s production house, Filmax, for another new film, I Will Die Tonight.

Vivas is going to work from a script by Alberto Marini, who scripted Jaume Balaguero’s superb Spanish thriller Sleep Tight.

That’s the art for the film that was whipped up in anticipation of the Cannes film market.  Head inside for the synopsis.
