Katie Holmes is Afraid of the Dark

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark Remake Filming in May.Variety reported tonight that Katie Holmes has signed on for the Miramax film Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark which was penned by Guillermo Del Toro and Matthew Robbins.

Although Holmes is best known as Tom Cruise’s taller half, I’ve actually enjoyed her performances, like in Disturbing Behavior and the highly-underrated GO! .

Troy Nixey will be directing the film, which will be his full-length directorial debut. Del Toro became a huge fan of Nixey’s after his 2007 creepy short film Latchkey’s Lament.

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark is based on the 1973 ABC made-for-TV movie about a young girl who moves in with her father and his girlfriend and discovers they are sharing the house with devilish creatures.

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark will start shooting this summer in Melbourne. No other casting news has been released.
