Premiere Entertainment Group has acquired the foreign sales rights for Caliber Media’s DARK WAS THE NIGHT directed by Jack Heller. The film premiered last week at ScreamFest in Los Angeles, winning Best Visual Effects and Best Special Effects, and will have its East Coast premiere on November 1st at the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Scary Movies, New York’s top genre film festival.
Kevin Durand (The Strain) and Lukas Haas (INCEPTION) star and battle with an ancient evil in the upcoming film that CRAVE ONLINE called “an exquisite creature feature.” The script, from Tyler Hisel, appeared on the 2009 Black List of best un-produced scripts, a rarity for the monster genre, under the title THE TREES. Rounding out the cast are Bianca Kajlich (Rules of Engagement), Sabina Gadecki (the ENTOURAGE movie), Heath Freeman (SKATELAND), Steve Agee (@midnight) and Nick Damici (LATE PHASES).
Sales will begin at this year’s American Film Market; the deal was announced today by Premiere Entertainment SVP Sales & Acquisitions Jack Campbell.
