‘[REC] Genesis’ & ‘[REC] Apocalypse’ Announced

The original REC was one of the best horror films in recent history, the sequel, I didn’t enjoy as much, was still better than most of the horror being released these days. So, I’m kind of half-and-half on the announcement that directors Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero have announced they will be returning for [REC] Genesis & [REC] Apocalypse.

Plaza will direct the first film Genesis, which much like the Batman and Star Trek franchises will return to the origin of the original infection that caused humans to turn into zombies.

Paca Plaze and Luis Alejandro Berdego (The New Daughter) will co-write the third installment, Genesis, with Balaguero actively involved in the development. The film will be released in the autumn of 2011.

Apocalypse will be directed by Balaguero and will end the [REC] saga with the pandemic spreading to unknown proportions.

Plaza will be involved in the final installment, Apocalypse. The film will be released in the autumn of 2012.

“We were overwhelmed by the audience’s reaction to [REC]. It was precisely this which inspired us to keep going with [REC]2. Again, the great support we have received from audiences and Filmax motivates us to investigate the [REC] idea even further,” say Plaza and Balagueró.

“We are really excited about the prospect of two new and completely revolutionary [REC] films,” says Julio Fernández, president of Filmax.
