Nacho Vigalondo

Ignacio „Nacho“ Vigalondo (born 6 April 1977 in Cabezón de la Sal, Spain) is a Spanish filmmaker.

In addition to receiving an Academy Award nomination and a Best Short Film Award nomination at the European Film Awards, Vigalondo’s 2003 short film 7:35 de la Mañana received the Bronze Moon of Valencia at the Cinema Jove – Valencia International Film Festival and the Prix UIP Drama at the Drama Short Film Festival.

He finished his first full length feature film, Los Cronocrímenes (English title: Timecrimes), in 2007, which he also co-starred in.

Vigalondo revealed on his official blog that his next film would be a Spanish-language alien invasion horror entitled Extraterrestre. „Scifi Latino“[who?] translates the plot: „Vigalondo writes that this will not be like a War of the Worlds with Tom Cruise, where a regular person manages to somehow closely witness all major invasion events. He writes that most people will experience a global alien invasion without even knowing it has happened, by listening to rumors, or engaging in pointless activities. Hence Extraterrestre.“

Popular comic book blogsite Bleeding Cool reported in mid-2011 that Vigalondo was recruited to direct a silver screen adaptation of Mark Millar’s Supercrooks.

Vigalondo has completed a script that will be a twist on the Kaiju genre and an homage for the Godzilla franchise. Vigalondo’s plans are to deliver a serious film with „old school“ practical effects on a low budget. 2014 wrote the script and directed the segment Parallel Monsters for the Anthology film VHS: Viral.
