Morena Films, Rebelion Terrestre to Co-Produce Pastor Brothers' 'The Last Days'

Alex and David Pastor's Spanish homecoming is an apocalyptic thriller.

MADRID -- Morena Films announced Thursday it has teamed up with Alberto Marini's Rebelion Terrestre to produce the second feature film of Alex and David Pastor, The Last Days.

Morena's Pedro Uriol, who said the film is presently being packaged, will produce the 5.5 million euro film set to shoot in November, with delivery by fall 2012.

The Last Days is a Spanish-language apocalyptic thriller set in Barcelona. A mysterious form of agoraphobia spreads across the world, leaving the entire population trapped indoors. As societal disorder engulfs Barcelona, Mateo finds himself separated from his pregnant girlfriend and must fight his way across the disintegrating city to save her and their baby -- without ever going outside.

The project will be the Pastors' return to their hometown, Barcelona, where Alex graduated from Catalonia's prestigious ESCAC film school before directing the Sundance winner short The Natural Route.  Most recently, the brothers lived in New York where they wrote and directed Carriers for Paramount Pictures, as well as developed various projects for Participant Media and Appian Way.
