“There’s Only One Rule: Stay in the Light”
Sounding similar to Brad Anderson’s Vanishing on 7th Street, Stealth Media Group is getting behind The Darkness, which has officially begun pre-production under the direction of Simon Foster.
“When the world is plunged into darkness, Greg Stonehaven has to somehow get to his children two hundred miles away. All forms of communication have stopped working. No cell phones, no Internet, no television, and to make matters worse the absence of sunlight is resulting in regular power failures as the electrical grid struggles with unprecedented demand; it soon completely fails. As the temperature drops, Greg’s children struggle to survive against an unseen force as their only sources of artificial light run out.”
Scout Taylor-Compton (Halloween, Halloween II, April Fool’s Day), Michael Biehn (The Terminator, Aliens, The Divide) and Frances Fisher (Unforgiven) are all in talks to star.
The film is being shot in Louisiana in North America beginning March 23.
