With all the controversy and mystery surrounding JJ Abrams’ latest alien flick Super 8, let’s not forget that another film filled with extraterrestrial related carnage is also on the way — The Darkest Hour!
According to What’s Playing Rachael Taylor (pictured right; Transformers, Shutter) and Joel Kinnaman (Snabba Cash) have joined the previously announced Emile Hirsch and Olivia Thirlby in Chris Gorak’s alien chiller The Darkest Hour. The film finds New Regency partnering with Summit Entertainment to bring us a 28 Days Later-like thriller about a group of kids struggling to survive in Russia after an alien invasion.
Russian director Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Night Watch) will be serving as producer, and the film will be shooting in Russia this summer at Bekmambetov’s own personal facilities.
