Shooting about to wrap in Alicante on Piterbarg’s thriller Everyone Has A Plan
by Sergio Ríos Pérez
24/08/2011 - At the end of this month at Alicante’s Ciudad de la Luz Studios, shooting will wrap on Argentinean director Ana Piterbarg’s debut feature, the thriller Everyone Has A Plan, which is co-produced by companies from Spain (Tornasol Films, Castafiore Films) and Germany (Terz Film) together with Argentina’s Haddock Films. The Argentinean capital of Buenos Aires, and the Delta del Tigre played host to the first part of the shoot, which took place between June and July.
One of the thriller’s major pulling points is the casting of famous US actor Viggo Mortensen (pictured), who lived in Argentina for several years during his childhood. In Everyone Has A Plan he plays Agustín, a man desperate to leave behind his frustrating life in Buenos Aires. The film also stars Soledad Villamil, Javier Godino and Daniel Fanego.
Everyone Has A Plan will be the ninth co-production between Gerardo Herrero’s two Spanish companies and Haddock Films, which was co-founded by Herrero and Vanessa Ragone (and, like the other two, takes its name from the Tintin stories). The biggest hit to emerge from this fruitful collaboration is without doubt Juan José Campanella’s The Secret In Their Eyes [trailer] (2009), which won the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar (see news) and was distributed worldwide. As a general rule, the shoots for these projects usually take place between Argentina and the Alicante studios, where Herrero also filmed co-productions like The Last Circus [trailer, film focus] and Tetro.
