After enjoying Buried enough to throw it on my list of the Best Films of 2010, you can bet that I'm definitely looking forward to director Rodrigo Rodrigo Cortés' next film Red Lights. If you haven't been keeping up, the film tells the story of a psychologist (Sigourney Weaver), and her assistant (Elizabeth Olsen) whose study of paranormal activity leads them to investigate a world-renowned psychic (Robert De Niro). Though the film won't see release until 2012, we now have our first look at De Niro in the film looking simultaneously ominous and cliché as he stands in front of a curtain wearing all black and sunglasses.
Here's the first photo from Red Lights courtesy of Shock Til You Drop (click for larger version):
Producer Adrian Guerra previously described the film, "Red Lights follows the steps of Buried 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." Cortés also wrote the script himself, and in addition to Weaver, De Niro and Olsen, the cast also feature Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins, 28 Days Later) and Toby Jones (Infamous, Frost/Nixon). Can't wait to see more from this flick. How about you?
