Amber Heard of ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS and NEVER BACK DOWN fame (an actress who has no less than 8 movies upcoming right now including THE RUM DIARY opposite Depp and Eckhart... and John Carpenter's WARD 19, his first movie in NINE years)... Odette Yustman of CLOVERFIELD and THE UNBORN fame... Are doing a movie together! Jesus. I won't know where to look when they share scenes together. The Hollywood Reporter say the movie is DARKNESS, a remake of a British thriller titled AND SOON THE DARKNESS from 1970. The remake will be co-financed by Studio Canal. Heard will co-produce, commercials helmer Marcos Efron will direct. YOU LUCKY SON OF A BITCH!
Set in Argentina, "Darkness" tells the story of two American girls on a bike-riding trip in a remote part of the country. When one of them goes missing, the other must find her before darkness falls and her worst fears are realized. The original was set in France and tackled the idea of how vulnerable a stranger in a strange land can be.
The original looked like this...
Heard has sure taken Sarah Michelle Gellar's mantle as the Blonde scream queen and she is certainly delighting horror fans like me.
We all know her from ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE, on the horizon she's got ZOMBIELAND, THE STEPFATHER, John Carpenter's WARD 19 and now DARKNESS. This chick rules!
