Robert De Niro is getting ready to join Sigourney Weaver in
director Rodrigo Cortés’ next film,
Written by Spain-hailing Cortés’ himself (
wasn’t), the film's a psychological thriller that follows Weaver’s psychologist, whose study of paranormal activity leads to an encounter with famous psychic De Niro.
Now, movie psychics can range from the awesome (Zelda Rubinstein in
) to the downright dreadful (Forest Whitaker in
), but considering this one's being played by Actor Of Our Generation De Niro himself, it's pretty safe to assume
will fall into the former category.
It should also show what Cortés is made of as a filmmaker. He’s proven he can handle tight situations, dreaming up some genius visuals for
’s man-in-a-coffin concept - but how about when he has to think outside of the box literally instead of figuratively?
Producer Adrian Guerra seems confident, stating: “
follows the steps of
in allowing us to make a highly commercial, bold and compelling film with great production values and Hollywood stars but keeping the creative control from Spain.”
We predict this is one to keep an eye on.
