Rogue Pictures Heads to ‘The Dark Fields’ in 2011

Rogue Pictures has announced a March 18, 2011 release for Neil Burger’s The Dark Fields, which stars Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks and Robert De Niro. Penned by Leslie Dixon, the story follows a down-and-out writer (Cooper) who gets his hands on a top-secret pharmaceutical drug that makes one smarter. He experiences sudden financial and social success but soon discovers that the drug has lethal and lasting side effects, including “trip-switching,” a phenomenon in which time moves with a stop-motion quality. Before long, mysterious antagonists are pursuing him. The thriller is said to be in the vein of Fight Club and The Game.
