Robert De Niro has just arrived in Barcelona to film a paranormal mystery. The actor will be participating in “Red Lights” a film directed by Spanish director Rodrigo Cortés, who directed Buried in 2010.
“Red Lights” will be the third feature length film of Cortés, who achieved worldwide acclaim with his 2010 “Buried” starring Ryan Reynolds.
De Niro will be shooting in Barcelona for a couple of weeks, before flying to Toronto, where the rest of the film will be shot.
In “Red Lights,” De Niro plays legendary psychic Simon Silver, who comes back into the limelight after spending 30 years in enigmatic isolation.
Sigourny Weaver will play Dr. Margaret Matheson, a medical doctor who with her assistant tries to disprove psychic phenomena, and hits a brick wall trying to explain those paranormal events surrounding Silver, something that turns into an obsession that could not only end her career, but turn into a dangerous cat-and-mouse game.
