Last week we brought news of a monster movie called DARK WAS THE NIGHT going into production. Starring Kevin Durand and Lukas Haas, the film's screenplay was once on the Hollywood Black List, meaning that's one sharp script - and a movie to keep an eye on.
As filming has just kicked off, director Jack Heller is still building his cast, today bringing actress Bianca Kajlich in on the fun. Kajlich was the lead in HALLOWEEN: RESURRECTION, which I'm assuming you've all seen like a hundred times, so she's probably very familiar to you. She can also be seen in BRING IT ON, 30 MINUTES OR LESS and the TV series "Rules of Engagement."
DARK WAS THE NIGHT centers on the isolated town of Maiden Woods, where a nearby logging company has disrupted the balance of the life in the woods. From the frozen forest, an evil will emerge and threaten the local citizens; their only hope being the local Sheriff and his trusted Deputy.
Kajlich will be playing the wife of Durand's sheriff character.
Flick also stars Sabina Gadecki (FREAKY DEAKY), Heath Freeman (SKATELAND), and Nick Damici (STAKE LAND). Director Jack Heller is producing with his Caliber partner Dallas Sonnier and Sundial's Stefan Nowicki. Preferred Content's Kevin Iwashina and Ross Dinerstein will executive produce the film alongside Sundial's Joey Carey and The Molecule's Ted Markovic; the latter will be handling the visual special effects. Screenwriter Hisel and manager Alexander Robb are also executive producers.
