Lights Out will light up theatre screens in July
Sandberg's flick is the creepiest three minutes I think have ever been put on film. And it only makes sense that, given the short's viral success, it would be turned into a feature film.
Sure enough, horror master James Wan has jumped on the opportunity, and Lights Out has received the feature-length treatment with stars Gabriel Bateman and Teresa Palmer.
Mmmmm. Teresa Palmer.
Lights Out is currently in post production, and New Line Cinema has awarded the flick a July 22, 2016 release date. What's the big-screen version about? A young boy and his estranged sister must confront an evil being that only appears when the lights are out.
Sounds promising! With Wan involved as producer, I have high hopes, especially given that Sandberg is writer and director.
