FE DE ETARRAS A NETFLIX ORIGINAL MOVIE STARRING JAVIER CÁMARA, JULIÁN LÓPEZ, MIREN IBARGUREN AND GORKA OTXOA STARTS PRODUCTION IN MADRID
Netflix, the world’s leading internet entertainment network, continues its investment in local European productions and has announced today the cast and start of production on its second Spanish original movie, Fe de etarras.
Directed by Borja Cobeaga (Negociador, No controles), written by himself and Diego San José (both co-writers of the recent box office success Spanish Affair and Spanish Affair 2), the production features Javier Cámara (Narcos, Truman, Living is Easy with Eyes Closed), Julián López (Age of Monster, Off Course, Friend Zone), Miren Ibarguren (Anclados, Aída, La que se avecina) and Gorka Otxoa (Allí abajo, Los miércoles no existen, Friend Zone). Tina Sáinz (Las chicas del cable, Águila Roja, Los muertos no se tocan, nene) and Ramón Barea (The Queen of Spain, El Negociador, No controles) also make a special appearance. This new Spanish Netflix original movie is a Mediapro production (Mondays In The Sun, Midnight in Paris, The Secret Life of Words, A Perfect Day) and will be premiering simultaneously in the 190 countries where Netflix operates.
Fe de etarras takes place in the sweltering summer of 2010 in a small Spanish town. A peculiar, dysfunctional armed group, formed by a veteran eager to prove he is not a coward (Javier Cámara), a couple seemingly held together by ETA (Miren Ibarguren and Gorka Otxoa) and a man from La Mancha who believes becoming a member of the organization or being Chuck Norris is one and the same (Julián López), find themselves stuck in a flat awaiting an elusive phone call which would allow them to go into action. To top it all, the Spanish national football team wins the World Cup in South Africa and has the whole country celebrating.
Borja Cobeaga demonstrates once again his acute sense of humor, creating a hilarious comedy where this odd group is doomed to fail in a big way. According to the director, "Fe de etarras is like Friends but taking place in a safe house."
