However, a Hollywood star came to the rescue. According to the variety, the producer of actress Cate Blanchett obtained the rights to the book and contacted the Spanish producer to finally complete this project.
The story of Manual for cleaners is a compilation of over 40 stories, focused on the suffering of different deaths in different countries and continents. Thereby, Dirty films (producer of Blanchett), Photos of El Deseo and the New Republic they will direct a script already written, once the final promotion of Parallel mothers, the film that could get the bizarre Oscar nomination for Penelope Cruz and composer Alberto Iglesias.
