Sánchez's first film script was for The Orphanage in 1996.[1] Sánchez originally wanted to direct the script but he was repeatedly turned down by various Spanish production companies.[2] While Sánchez was working on the short film 7337, he met with director Juan Antonio Bayona and offered him the script to direct.[3][4] The Orphanage was a large hit and Sánchez was nominated for Best Screenplay at the 2008 Goya Awards in Spain.[5]

In May 2009, Variety reported that Sánchez would re-team up with The Orphanage director Juan Antonio Bayona, on a production by Madrid-based Apaches Entertainment, Telecinco Cinema, and Spongeman, Bayona's own Barcelona-based label.[6] Sánchez completed a first-draft screenplay in late April.[6] The film, called The Impossible, was filmed in 2010.[7]
