Most recently, Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning Oscar-nominated actress Rosamund Pike, who appeared before the audience in the Amazon Originals series The Wheel of Time, will play the leading role in the pandemic-themed thriller “Rich Flu”.
Pablo Larrain, the director of the Spencer movie, will be producing the film. Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia will sit in the director’s chair of Rich Flu, whose screenplay will be penned by Pedro Rivero and Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia. Filming is scheduled to begin next fall. Gaztelu-Urrutia directed the Netflix movie Platform (El Hoyo) in 2019 and received critical acclaim. Platform’s script team also included Pedro Rivero.
Rich Flu will describe an environment in which an interesting disease has killed the richest and most influential people in the world. When the contagious disease that first killed billionaires and then millionaires began to kill even the smallest wealthy, the world, which was in a panic, was filled with people who wanted to get rid of all their possessions. Rich Flu questions how far people will go to save their lives when the world-turning wealth suddenly becomes the most dangerous commodity.
Director Gaztelu-Urrutia said of the film: “Rich Flu is a tremendous physical epic full of obstacles and surprises. But above all, it is a complex and provocative emotional journey into the depths of the human spirit and the heights of our self-indulgence. Only Rosamund Pike’s courage and “An artist with the intellect could have brought this film to life. I am immensely grateful to the incredible and highly respected team at Sierra/Affinity for their support in sharing our project on the Berlin market.”
