Joe Dante is the Executive Producer to “Dark” which will be directed by Nick Basile and written by Elias (Gut). The horror film Dark focuses on the 2003 New York blackout. I remember that blackout and it was not creepy as the night fell. Look for Whitney Able and Alexandra Breckenridge to star.
Synopsis: Set in NYC during the blackout of 2003, Kate, a struggling 30-something model with a troubled past, has just moved into her girlfriend Leah’s Brooklyn loft, but already doubts about their relationship have begun to loom. When Leah leaves for the weekend, Kate unexpectedly find herself alone in the apartment in the midst of the worst blackout in North American history. As darkness falls over the city, Kate’s paranoia grows and she begins to believe someone in the building is stalking her. With no one to help her and escape out of reach, Kate is forced to confront her deepest fears as she fights to survive through the night.
