Timur Bekmambetov, director of “Wanted” and “Day Watch” and producer of “9″, will produce the oncoming “Darkest Hour”, which is being is described as “28 Days Later” meets tentacled alien invaders in Russia. A group of kids struggle to survive in some unnamed Russian city after the saucers land and everyones civil rights are violated.
Chris Gorak will direct. Mr. Gorak’s latest was the spine tingling thriller “Right At Your Door” about the psychological impact of a terrorist attack in L.A. I heard that one was pretty nifty. All this will go down on location, in Russia, at Timur’s personal and exclusive film making “facilities”. New Regency and Summit are paying the bills. Sounds like good stuff. Thanks Deadline.
