All the way back in April Bloody Disgusting exclusively reported that Keri Russell (Mission: Impossible III, Grimm Love) and Daniel Barrett were both in talks to star in Blumhouse’s alien-invasion horror Dark Skies. They would play the young boys parents, who are financially struggling to get by. This morning we’ve confirmed our previous report that Keri Russell will in fact star.
Being produced by Blumhouse and Alliance Films, we’ve also exclusively learned that the horror flick focuses on a 6-year-old boy who’s apparently been “marked” by an alien (living among us) for future abduction. It looks like it taps into some of the same themes of Fright Night, while also playing into child abuse (did the parents cause these marks on the child’s body?)
Legion and Priest director Scott Charles Stewart is getting behind the camera.
Blumhouse is responsible for the Paranormal Activity films, and the forthcoming The Lords of Salem, directed by Rob Zombie, Sinister, Area 51, Vigilandia, Not Safe For Work and Mockingbird.
