Brad Anderson tapped to direct the pilot episode of "Midnight Sun"

Earlier this week Jake gave us all the latest bit of casting news regarding NBC's "Midnight Sun" and now here I am with word on who will be directing the pilot!

As if the title of this article didn't give it away - According to the guys over at Bloody-Disgusting the talented Brad Anderson will be helming "Midnight Sun's" pilot episode. Well... I'm sold!

The thriller follows the mysterious disappearance of Midnight Sun, a group living on a cult-like commune in Alaska, and a female FBI cult specialist leading the investigation that uncovers a larger conspiracy.

Truth be told "Midnight Sun" wasn't really doing anything for me but I'm a big Brad Anderson (above) fan so you can go ahead and color this schmuck intrigued.

Julia Stiles (below), Emma Bell, Daniella Pineda, David Harbour and Titus Welliver have all been cast in the show already, which is slated to start shooting this May in Vancouver. You can bet we'll keep our eyes open for any other "Midnight Sun" updates that roll our way so be sure to check back soon for any news.

Extra Tidbit: "Midnight Sun" is only one of three genre projects in the works involving "cults."
