It didn’t take long for Nick Basile’s thriller Dark to surpass its fundraising goal on Kickstarter last year, and it no doubt helped that Joe Dante’s name was attached to the project. As production gets ready to begin, the cast has just been filled out, and we’ve got the latest for ya today.
Variety reports that The Call and “Bates Motel”‘s Michael Eklund and Boys Don’t Cry‘s Brendan Sexton have rounded out the cast of the psychological thriller, which will also star Whitney Able (Monsters) and Alexandra Breckenridge (“American Horror Story”).
In the film, written by Elias and directed by Basile, Able plays a disturbed young woman who must confront her worst fears when she finds herself trapped alone in a New York City loft during the 2003 blackout.
Kathryn Belli, Dave Boulton, Basile, and Elias will produce alongside executive producer Joe Dante and his company Renfield Productions.
Minerva Pictures is selling Dark to international buyers at Cannes.
