Bruce McDonald (Hard Core Logo, The Tracey Fragments) is now attached to direct Dark Highway, which begins filming in Canada later this year. It was written by Christopher Kyle (Alexander, K19: The Widowmaker) and will be produced as a joint venture between Palomar Pictures and Foundation Features.
The film is described as a supernatural thriller and has the following logline, “Story follows a man being chased who is trying to get to a certain place in one day. He doesn’t know whether the situation is real or his imagination.”
They should rewrite that one. I’m all for maintaining a sense of mystery around a project, but the above reads like even the filmmakers don’t know what the damn thing is about.
McDonald is at TIFF this week with his new film. Per Variety, “McDonald, whose latest pic ‘Hard Core Logo 2’ will screen at Toronto, is also part of an industry master class being offered at the fest today, where emerging filmmakers, film students and industry delegates will have the chance to learn from the Canadian maverick.”
