Producer Guy Danella and writer Luke Passmore had a great run at the Toronto International Film Festival with their Midnight Madness entry The Day, but the duo aren’t resting on their laurels as a new project is already waiting in the wings.

According to Screen Daily next up for them is an adaptation of Jack Kilborn’s action horror novel Afraid for Gold Circle Films. No other details are available at press time, but we’ll keep an eye on things for you.

The US government spends billions of dollars training soldiers to kill. Now they’re attempting an alternative approach. Instead of turning soldiers into killers, the military has trained five psychopathic murderers to be part of a classified Special Forces unit.

Codename: Red-Ops

They are the most fearsome weapon ever created, meant to be dropped behind enemy lines. Their goals: Isolate. Terrorize. Annihilate. Five Hannibal Lectors with Rambo training. But something horrible has happened…

Welcome to Safe Haven, Population 907

A tiny community of families, retirees, and artists, nestled between Big Lake and Little Lake MacDonald in the northwoods. One road in, one road out, thirty miles away from everything. A town so small and peaceful they don’t even have a full time police force.

Hell has come to Safe Haven

On their way to a mission, the Red Ops helicopter has crashed just outside of town. The team is now roaming free in the wilderness, heading for the nearest lights. Heading there to do what they do best.

Soon the phone lines are cut, the cell phones jammed, and the road blocked. Safe Haven’s only chance for survival rests on the shoulders of an aging county Sheriff. And as the body count rises, he’s quickly realizing something terrifying—maybe the Red Ops haven’t come to his small town by accident…

Safe Haven, Wisconsin. Population 907. . . 906. . . 905. . .

Are you afraid of the dark? You should be. You will be.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • Pestilence

    Highly enjoyable novel that almost reads like a movie, much in the way Brian Keene’s novels do. This should make for a great flick provided they don’t shy away from the brutality of the book.
