We first told you about the upcoming flick The Diabolical during our round of incessant AFM coverage (seriously, thank god that’s only once a year). Thankfully, this is one project out of the show that is actually happening! Read on for the latest!
Deadline reports that Ali Larter (Varsity Blues, Final Destination, “Heroes”) is set to lead The Diabolical from Preferred Film & TV. She’ll play Madison, a single mother who with her children is awoken nightly by an increasingly strange and intense presence. She seeks help from her scientist boyfriend, Nikolai, who begins a hunt to destroy the violent spirit that paranormal experts are too frightened to take on.
The Diabolical marks the feature debut of genre-influenced commercials and music video helmer Alistair Legrand, who is directing a script he co-wrote with Luke Harvis. Preferred Film & TV’s Ross Dinerstein is producing. Content Media Corp (CMC) is backing the project and will rep North American rights with Preferred Content while CMC’s Jamie Carmichael sells international.
Filming begins in February 2014 so look for lots more soon.
