Netflix hit Bird Box to get movie spin-off filmed in Spain.

A SPANISH movie spin-off of Netflix 2018 supernatural thriller hit Bird Box, which starred Sandra Bullock and was directed by Susanne Bier, is in the pipeline.

And shooting of the as yet unnamed film is expected to start toward the end of the year in Spain.

Original producers Dylan Clark and Chris Morgan will reportedly return but will add a distinctly Spanish flavour

Bird Box remains one of Netflix’s most-watched original movies ever, with Bullock portraying a mother trying to protect herself and her two children from mysterious creatures that force people to kill themselves if they lay eyes on them.

There has been talk of a sequel for some time, with the author of the source novel Josh Malerman claiming last year that the follow-up was in development.

His sequel book Malorie was published last year, but at the moment it appears the focus is on the Spanish-language spinoff instead.

NetflixFilm tweeted: “Alex and David Pastor will write and direct a new Spanish spin-off film set in the world of BIRD BOX. The untitled original film starts production later this year in Spain.”
