Dark is Rising pics

Amongst the troves of roaming dogs and the city drivers who have apparently nothing left to live for, a little film adaptation of the Susan Cooper novel THE DARK IS RISING is being filmed in Bucharest, Romania; and it's looking amazing!

The pictures below are from said film, and while it's swayed from the original story by Cooper, both director David Cunningham and writer John Hodge have managed to put together an absolute great fantasy film that's set in realism. (Sound strange? Once my full set visit is up all will be explained!)

THE DARK IS RISING is a film telling the story of Will Stanton, a young man who learns he is the last of a group of warriors who have dedicated their lives to fighting the forces of the Dark. Traveling back and forth through time Will discovers a series of clues, which lead him into a showdown with forces of unimaginable power. With the Dark once again rising, the future of the world rests in Will's hands.

So take a look at the pics below from the film, and check back soon as I begin my descent back into madness with my set report; or as I like to refer to it: "How I learned to stop worrying and love Romania". THE DARK IS RISING hits theatres October 5th, 2007 and stars Jonathan Jackson, Ian McShane, Christopher Eccleston, Frances Conroy and others...
