Jaume Balagueró is perhaps best known for his popular cinema verite thrillers [REC] and [REC]2 (review), which was co-written and c-directed with Paco Plaza, and have since become tremendous hits among horror fans. While speculation concerning the potential for a [REC]3 continues, Shock Till You Drop has reported that Jaume Balaguero's solo directorial effort Flatmate has entered the pre-production stages and has announced its first cast member, Spanish actor Luis Tosar.

Tosar is most widely known for his role as the primary antagonist Montoya in Michael Mann's Miami Vice, though he sports an impressive list of roles from Spain, including last year's Cellda 211, for which he received a best actor nomination at the 2010 Goya Awards, which will be held on February 14th.

In addition to this little tidbit of info, Shock also brings to us an updated synopsis, expanding on the one they reported a few months back.
