Bucking the trend of updating the masses via Twitter, Todd Lincoln has instead opted to communicate via Facebook, where he provided an update on the status of The Apparition, which he’s writing and directing for Joel Silver’s Dark Castle.
Lincoln wrote the following as his most recent Facebook update: “in Berlin prepping The Apparition. Love my crew. We’re building our sets on the same stage that Polanski recently shot on and that Fritz Lang shot Metropolis.”
Now that’s some heady history there! The Studio Babelsberg, located in Potsdam-Babelsberg, Germany, is the oldest large-scale film studio in the world. Founded in 1911, it covers an area of about 270,000 square feet.
Last we heard, Dark Castle was shooting for a February 1, 2010, start date so things appear to be on track. The Apparition, which is inspired by true events, centers on a young couple haunted by a supernatural presence that’s unleashed during a college experiment. As mentioned previously, The Twilight Saga‘s Ashley Green will be playing one half of the aforesaid. Hopefully we’ll learn who will portray her partner shortly.
