Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has been quite the hot commodity after he hit the scene with his rather superb action/horror film sequel, 28 WEEKS LATER.

With his adaptation of the hit video game, Bioshock, seeming to be in permanent development purgatory, it looks as though the filmmaker has left the project to work on a new film, and is getting a great cast to join him. According to Heat Vision, the filmmaker is leaving the production to move onto an English language thriller, INTRUDERS, set to be led by Clive Owen and one of INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS’ break-out stars, Daniel Brühl. The film follows “an 11-year-old girl who is forced to confront childhood demons.”

If there is one thing that we know Fresnadillo can do, and do better than most, it is get great performances not only out of all of his actors, but particularly the younger ones. The lead child has yet to be cast, but the film is slated to shoot this June, so I wouldn’t doubt that role being cast rather quickly.

The film is being written by Jaime Marques and Nico Casariego, and while we all know that Owen can hold his own as an actor, I’m really intrigued to see just what else Brühl has in the tank after his rather stellar performance in BASTERDS.  I loved him in that film and, of course, am waiting with baited breath to see the next thing from Fresnadillo, who launched onto American screens with his superb sequel to Danny Boyle’s 28 DAYS LATER.
