Video Director Confirmed For ‘Near Dark’ Remake

Bloody-Disgusting has been scooped that Samuel Bayer will in fact helm Rogue Pictures’ Near Dark remake for Platinum Dunes. Bayer directed music videos for The Smashing Pumpkins, Metallica, Green Day, Garbage and many others. Matt Venne wrote the screenplay that follows a young man who reluctantly joins a travelling “family” of evil vampires, when the girl he’d tried to seduce is part of that group. This will be the next film from Platinum Dunes, which is headed by Brad Fuller and Andrew Form.
