Everyone’s clamoring over director Niels Arden Oplev’s mystery thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and with good reason … it’s a top-notch slice of whodunit fun that pulls no punches along the way to its resolution. That being said, it’s really good news that Oplev is turning his attention our way to the horror genre.
According to Bloody Disgusting Oplev is now attached to get behind the camera for The Keep, Ehren Kruger’s (The Ring, Skeleton Key) adaptation of Jennifer Egan’s novella. Dig on the plot crunch below, and look for more on this one soon.
“Two cousins, irreversibly damaged by a childhood prank whose devastating consequences changed both their lives, reunite twenty years later to renovate a medieval castle in Eastern Europe, a castle steeped in blood lore and family pride. Built over a secret system of caves and tunnels, the castle and its violent history invoke and subvert all the elements of a Gothic past: twins, a pool, an old baroness, a fearsome tower. In an environment of extreme paranoia, cut off from the outside world, the men reenact the signal event of their youth, with even more catastrophic results. And as the full horror of their predicament unfolds, a prisoner, in jail for an unnamed crime, recounts an unforgettable story — a story about two cousins who unite to renovate a castle — that brings the crimes of the past and present into piercing relation.”
