Actress Scout Taylor-Compton (Halloween) is set to join Michael Biehn (The Victim) and Frances Fisher (The Roommate) in writer/director Simon Foster’s blackout thriller The Darkness. The project will roll camera on June 8 in Louisiana.
The synopsis reads:
When the world is plunged into darkness, Greg Stonehaven has to somehow get to his children two hundred miles away.
All forms of communication have stopped working. No cell phones, no Internet, no television, and to make matters worse the absence of sunlight is resulting in regular power failures as the electrical grid struggles with unprecedented demand.
It soon completely fails. People are confused and very frightened and their only sources of artificial light will soon run out.
I think I saw this when it was called The Vanishing on Seventh Street.
Compton’s horror creds include the AfterDark 8 Films to Die For entry Wicked Little Things and the Butcher Brothers’ remake of the 1986 comedic-slasher April Fool’s Day. The pretty 22-year-old, however, is best known for taking on the iconic role of Laurie Strode in Rob Zombie’s Halloween and Halloween 2 re-imaginings.
