Gravitas Ventures has acquired U.S. rights to Nightworld, starring A Nightmare On Elm Street‘s Robert Englund.
Both Englund and Jason London star in Patricio Valladares’ (Hidden in the Woods, the upcoming Downhill) new supernatural horror drama, which was filmed in Bulgaria by an international crew.
Penned by Barry Keating, Loris Curci and Milan Konjevic, “When Former LAPD Office, Brett Irlam takes a job as head of security at an old apartment building in Bulgaria’s capital, Sofia, he soon begins to experience a series of bizarre and terrifying events. Once he begins to delve deep into the building’s sinister history, and investigate it’s shadowy owners and past employees, Brett soon uncovers a malevolent force nestled deep in the bowels of the building in basement that will do anything to be set free into our world.”
“I had never played a blind man before,” Englund previously joked. “It was challenging, fun and my character had some great lines. ‘Nightworld’ is one of the scariest scripts I have read in a long time. The story is haunting and original, and opens up to possible sequels…”
Producers are Loris Curci (11/11/11), Magarditch Halvadjian and Silvester Yordanov.
