San Diego Comic-Con 2010: Guillermo del Toro and Troy Nixey Talk Don't Be Afraid of the Dark; See the Trailer and More!
They say in Hollywood there are no sure bets. For this writer, I beg to differ because my sure bet is always writer/producer/director Guillermo del Toro. When I heard that del Toro would be attending the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con to promote the latest project he’s producing, the Troy Nixey-helmed Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, I knew I had to be front and center to get the lowdown on this supernatural thriller.
One of the great things about working for Dread Central is that it forces me to be up-to-speed on everything happening within our beloved genre. With that said, however, some things have a way of catching me off guard. Like that the 1973 classic Don't Be Afraid of the Dark has been remade and that none other than Guillermo del Toro is producing it. Read on to know when you can expect it to hit a theater near you!
Some movement on the Guillermo del Toro produced Don't Be Afraid of the Dark remake. Two actors are getting ready to star beside the already cast Katie Holmes. Who might they be?
Guillermo del Toro is being true to his word and mentoring another young filmmaker into his first feature, this time teaming with Miramax on a remake of the 1973 classic Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. THR reports that the film will serve as comic book writer/artist Troy Nixey’s directorial debut. Surely a dream come true.
