Filmax Plans Two More “[REC]” Sequels

Directors Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero will split directing responsibilities for two further films in the Spanish-language “[REC]” horror franchise for Filmax International reports Screen Daily.

The pair previously co-directed the first two films and while they will co-develop the next two, they will solo direct one each. Plaza directs and co-wrote the third film “[REC] Genesis” with Luis Berdejo which will explore the origins of the diabolic zombie mutant virus.

Balaguero will direct the fourth and final film “[REC] Apocalypse”. The films will open Fall 2011 and Fall 2012 respectively.

The first film “[REC]” opened in Fall 2007 and was a major hit, scoring an American remake with “Quarantine”.
