Joe Dante, for quite some time. But that doesn't mean things aren't happening on the project.
The latest development is Bate Motel's Michael Eklund, along with Black Hawk Down star Brendan Sexton III, are on board for the psychological horror story, which takes place during the 2003 blackout that struck North America.
They join Whitney Able (Monsters) and Alexandra Breckenridge (American Horror Story). Dark will be directed by Nick Basile and is written by Gut writer/director Elias. Cameras role in New York next month.
Dark sounds like my pint of beer, and the 2003 outage is perfect material for a suspense-based movie. As for the plot, Able stars as a disturbed young woman who must confront her worst fears when she finds herself trapped in a New York loft during the blackout.
