El País' Pablo Staricco reported yesterday that Brian De Palma will arrive in Uruguay sometime in November to begin shooting his new thriller Sweet Vengeance. According to a June 26 article by La Diaria's Débora Quiring, the shoot, said to be 4-10 weeks, will last through February 2019 in Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay, and the east coast of the country. Sweet Vengeance is inspired by two true murder stories, and although it will be shot in Uruguay, it will be set in the United States. Two "front-line" international actors will play the male and female leads, according to Oriental Features' Santiago López and Diego Robino, although they could not yet reveal the actors' names, as casting and talks are still in progress. Quiring's article adds that some secondary roles and extras will be filled out by Uruguayan and regional actors.

"For 30 or 40 years," De Palma told the press in Paris earlier this month, "I have seen a number of true stories of crimes presented on television, as in the program 48 Hours. I'm interested in how they tell the story of the crime, so I'll do it the way they do it on television, based on two real cases."

Oriental Features, a division of Oriental Films, is the Uruguayan production company in charge of filming, in collaboration with Rodrigo Teixeira of RT Features from Brazil, and De Palma's own team. Here's more from Staricco's article, with Google-assisted translation:

The new project of the American director, who recently completed his last film Domino, reached the Uruguayans by the hand of Teixeira. The Brazilian, who has independent films such as Frances Ha, The Witch and the Oscar-Winner Call Me By Your Name, previously worked with Oriental Features on the filming of the series The Hypnotist (HBO), as well as the films The Silence Of The Sky and Severina.

Teixeira told the Uruguayans, two years ago, that he planned to produce the new De Palma film. After an intense search of locations, López and Robino managed to position Uruguay as the best place to shoot Sweet Vengeance. The inspection of the places was done with an assistant director of the filmmaker.

Robino described that search for locations as a "very strong" process. "There were very specific things that had to look like another place different from the Uruguayan architectural landscape," said the producer, under the halo of secrecy that surrounds all cinematographic projects in their initial stages. It will be filmed in Montevideo and in the east.

Of the plot of Sweet Vengeance it is known that it is based on two real crimes that took place in the United States, and its story will be set in that country. "It's a contemporary film," said Robino. De Palma "unites these crimes and builds a thriller under his own stamp," he added.

"It grabs us solid," López said about the challenge after reviewing the recent work of the producer, which includes the latest film by Federico Veiroj, "El cambista" ("It's spectacular", the producer said); and the Argentinean "El motoarrebatador" -which was premiered at the Cannes Festival- and "El otro hermano", by the Uruguayan Israel Adrián Caetano.

In addition, this will not be the first time that Oriental Features is under the command of a renowned director. In December of 2017 the producer filmed, during a weekend, part of the movie The Pope, of Netflx, directed by Fernando Meirelles (City of God) and which was photographed by the Uruguayan César Charlone. That creative duo had brought, in 2007, the shooting of Blindness, which had Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo filming in Montevideo.

With their future work with De Palma, Robino and López hope to continue opening the doors of Uruguay to the world of international cinema. They recognized that the challenge is great and that the director is not known to maintain a calm climate in his sets.

The pre-production will start in November, but both producers said they are ready. "It will be complex and to that we must add that it is Brian De Palma," said López. "It is a demand that we must have without hesitation."

I wonder if some form of the documentary approach will be used by De Palma.

Hopefully it won't be like Redacted, which looked kind of lazy in its approach to filmmaking... It sounds like the typical de palma project which never gets made because no actor has been announced. We'll see...
