We get the feeling that Mary Elizabeth Winstead is enjoying her stint in horror land as the young actress has yet another genre film on the horizon. Read on for details.
According to Variety, German helmer Daniel Stamm (The Last Exorcism) is set to direct psychological thriller The Darkness, which HanWay Films will unveil to buyers at the EFM in Berlin this week.
The project will topline Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, The Thing) as an American student looking after her tutor’s two children in a remote English manor house. She soon comes to believe that she and the children are being haunted when their lives are threatened by mysterious events.
Megan Holley penned the script while Occupant Entertainment’s Joe Neurauter and Felipe Marino and Management 360’s Ben Forkner will produce.
Genre-specialty banner XYZ Films, whose Gareth Evans helmer The Raid has been a critical success at festivals, will exec produce The Darkness.
