Steve Zaillian and Mandate Pictures will produce Nacho Vigalondo's comedy Gangland. Almost everyone I know has raved about Nacho's feature directorial debut Timecrimes (which I have still yet to see, despite it being a time travel story), and you may have seen some of Vigalondo's short films previously on this site (check out Choque if you have a few minutes). Gangland is based on an original idea from Nacho, and is being co-written by Pat Healy, an actor turned screenwriter who was involved in several episodes of HBO's In Treatment and has had two scripts end up on the annual Black List. According to THR, the story follows a team of video game developers who "get in over their heads after they promise to deliver the most realistic game of all time, titled 'Gangland,' and soon find themselves having to survive by their own wits in a real-life criminal underworld. »

If you follow what’s going on at the Alamo Drafthouse or Fantastic Fest, then you’ve no doubt heard ad nausium our gushing praise for Nacho Vigalondo. That little Spainaird packs a big cinematic punch, and we can’t wait to finally put is brilliant feature Timecrimes on the Alamo screen, which opens for a full run at The Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar on January 16!
Before Nacho made Timecrimes, however, he was successful short film director, and was even nominated for an Academy Award for one particularly hysterical and bizarre gem called 7:35 in the Morning. All his shorts are exceptional (you can expect a great pre-show program of them when you come see Timecrimes at South Lamar) but there’s one in particular that got the whole crowd revved up- Choque. A very funny and heartbreaking story of love, jealousy and bumper cars. Apparently, we’re not alone »
