SpectreVision, the film production shingle founded by Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah, and Josh C. Waller, has teamed with Zodiac Features on the “anthropological zombie film” CURSE THE DARKNESS, and they've tapped Mexican helmer Jorge Michel Grau to direct, according to Deadline.
Grau, who is best known for his international hit SOMOS LO QUE HAY (WE ARE WHAT WE ARE), is directing from a script by Brandon Maurice Williams and Zodiac is funding and co-producing the project. This is what we know:
“The pic is set against the backdrop of the Louisiana sugarcane fields and the systematic exploitation of labor and undocumented workers by large corporations.”
Wood, Noah, and Waller will produce for SpectreVision.
CURSE THE DARKNESS begins lensing in October in Louisiana and marks the latest U.S. project for Grau, who also helmed a segment in the anthology THE ABC'S OF DEATH. His American feature debut is the upcoming BIG SKY, starring Bella Thorne, Kyra Sedgewick and Frank Grillo.
