‘The Day’ Duo ‘Afraid’ of Action Horror Adaptation

Producer Guy Danella and writer Luke Passmore, whose Midnight Madness entry The Day played to a sold out crowd at TIFF, are adapting Jack Kilborn’s action horror novel Afraid for Gold Circle Films, says Screen Daily.

‘Afraid’ takes place over the course of a single night as a unit of psychopathic murderers trained by the military accidentally crash lands into a one-street town.

Believing they have been dropped behind enemy lines, the unit’s deadly training kicks in as they unleash hell.

Gold Circle’s Paul Brooks will also produce and Scott Niemeyer will serve as executive producer.

Danella and Passmore’s first collaboration, post-apocalyptic war thriller The Day, stars Shawn Ashmore, Ashley Bell, Michael Eklund, Cory Hardrict, Dominic Monaghan and Shannyn Sossamon.
