Back in April we told you about the latest project from Dimension Films with director Scott Stewart (Priest, Legion), Dark Skies. Details were scant, but we knew it has something to do with aliens menacing children. Today a synopsis fleshes out the terror.
From the Press Release
Dimension Films has acquired U.S. distribution rights to the supernatural thriller DARK SKIES, written and directed by Scott Stewart (PRIEST, LEGION). Jason Blum will produce through his Blumhouse Productions (INSIDIOUS, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY) alongside Alliance Films, which will fully finance the picture. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Alliance Films’ Charles Layton will executive produce. Alliance Films will distribute in Canada, in the UK (via its Momentum Pictures subsidiary), and in Spain (via Aurum).
“Jason has done a masterful job over the past several years of breaking new ground and creating huge commercial successes in the supernatural and horror genres,” said Bob Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company. “We are confident that Dark Skies will continue that success.”
The film is scheduled to go into production this summer.
Dark Skies is a psychological thriller about a suburban couple whose lives become a nightmare when a terrifying alien presence enters their home each night to prey upon their children. Increasingly isolated from skeptical friends and neighbors, the couple is forced to take matters into their own hands to save their family.
