Bates Motel's Michael Eklund to star in Dark; Joe Dante to exec produce

Michael Eklund, who plays the despicable Zane Carpenter on A&E's "Bates Motel", has joined the cast of director Nick Basile's upcoming thriller DARK, according to Variety.

Eklund joins BLACK HAWK DOWN's Brendan Sexton III for the psychological thriller that is being executive produced by genre fave Joe Dante (GREMLINS). Written by the singularly-named Elias (who wrote and directed last years GUT), DARK also stars Whitney Able (MONSTERS) and Alexandra Breckenridge (“American Horror Story”) in a tale that centers on...

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.

Kathryn Belli, Dave Boulton, Basile, and Elias will produce alongside executive producer Joe Dante and his company Renfield Productions.
