The Dark

More chills are headed our way courtesy of XYZ Films as Screen Daily is reporting that Los Angeles-based XYZ Films has scooped up US sales rights to Justin P. Lange’s horror project The Dark after 15 minutes of footage screened at the Cannes Marché last month.

Lange’s feature directorial debut took part in the Frontières Goes to Cannes buyers showcase and tells of a flesh-eating undead girl who haunts a stretch of woods where she was murdered. Years later she befriends a kidnapped blind boy who changes her life.

The Dark is based on Lange’s Columbia University thesis short film of the same name and was shot in Northern Ontario, Canada, with the support of the Austrian Film Institute, the ORF Film/Television-Agreement, and the NOHFC.

Nadia Alexander and Toby Nichols star alongside Austria’s Karl Markovics, the lead in Austria’s 2008 foreign-language Oscar winner The Counterfeiters who also starred in The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Danny Krausz and Kurt Stocker of Vienna-based Dor Film are producing with Laura Perlmutter and Andrew Nicholas McCann Smith of Toronto-based First Love Films. Florian Krügel serves as executive producer. Klemens Hufnagl serves as cinematographer and co-director.
