Screen Media has acquired North American rights to DARK, a thriller directed by Nick Basile and executive produced by the man himself, Joe Dante. The flick stars Alexandra Breckinridge (The Walking Dead), Whitney Able (MONSTERS) and Michael Eklund (Bates Motel).
Set in NYC during the blackout of 2003...
Kate, a struggling 30-something model with a troubled past, has just moved into her girlfriend Leah's Brooklyn loft, but already doubts about their relationship have begun to loom. When Leah leaves for the weekend, Kate unexpectedly finds herself alone in the apartment in the midst of the worst blackout in North American history. As darkness falls over the city, Kate's paranoia grows and she begins to believe someone in the building is stalking her. With no one to help her and escape out of reach, Kate is forced to confront her deepest fears as she fights to survive through the night.
DARK will be released later this year; we'll hit you back when we get an exact date.
