Davide Melini’s ‘LION’ Begins A Dark Terrifying Nightmare



Davide Melini's LION Begins A Dark Terrifying Nightmare

Davide Melini is an Italian screenwriter and director who has worked as an assistant director on Dario Argento’s “Mother of Tears: The Third Mother” and “Penny Dreadful”. Well, we now have information on his next upcoming short project titled LION, which is a dark nightmare set in an isolated chalet in a snowy forest. We don’t know if a LION will actually appear in the film, but we sure hope it does.

Something interesting to note, LION will be shot using Red Epic Dragon 6K.

“An isolated chalet in a snowy forest… A man blinded by alcohol… A woman unable to rebel… And an 8-year-old child troubled and dark… The silent night is broken with cries… the start of a terrible nightmare!”

Melini’s own credits include 6 short films: Amore estremo (2006), La sceneggiatura (2006), The Puzzle (2008), The Sweet Hand of the White Rose (2010), Lion (2016), and Deep Shock (2017).

The film is written and directed by Davide Melini, produced by Luca Vannella (“Thor”, “Harry Potter”, “Apocalypto”, “Heart of the Sea”), Alexis Continente (“Thor”, “Penny Dreadful”), Vincenzo Mastrantonio (“Titanic”, “Moulin Rouge”, “The Passion of Christ”, “Romeo + Juliet”), Bobby Holland (“The Dark Knight Rises”, “Game of Thrones”, “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”, “007 – Quantum of Solace”), Ferdinando Merolla (“Troy”, “Gangs of New York”, “Hannibal Rising”), and Roberto Paglialunga.

We have a bit of promotional material to show off, including the poster, teaser trailer, and images from the film, all of which can be seen below. LION stars Pedro Sánchez, Michael Segal and Tania Mercader.
