Shooting has begun on the first series of Álex de la Iglesia, in which Macarena Gómez plays a leading role. Produced by Pokeepsie Films for HBO, 30 Coins will mix religion, terror, and action in a story that revolves around a parish priest with a very dark past.
In Search of the 30 Judas Coins
Father Vergara (Eduard Fernandez) is an exorcist and boxer who has been in prison. Seeking to start a new life and leave his murky life behind, he moves to a small Spanish town. But after some strange phenomena that make the parish priest suspicious, Paco (Miguel Ángel Silvestre) and Elena (Megan Montaner) begin to investigate the story of Father Vergara.
The plot turns into a race to get the 30 Judas coins under their possession and into the eye of a conspiratorial hurricane that could change the world.
The shooting of the series will go beyond our borders. As far as we know, it will be shot in Pedraza, Madrid, Rome, and Jerusalem. And there will be a total of eight one-hour episodes whose release date is not yet known.
Apart from Eduard Fernández, Miguel Ángel Silvestre and Megan Montaner, Macarena Gómez will share the cast with Manolo Soto and Pepón Nieto.
