Is there any stopping Dimension Films? Many of us may not agree with a lot of genre films that they churn out, but there is no denying their staying power, and their latest flick is one that deals with Aliens living among us which is entitled, Dark Skies.
From the Press Release:
“Dimension Films has acquired U.S. distribution rights to the supernatural thriller DARK SKIES, written and directed by Scott Stewart (PRIEST, LEGION). Jason Blum will produce through his Blumhouse Productions (INSIDIOUS, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY) alongside Alliance Films, which will fully finance the picture. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Alliance Films’ Charles Layton will executive produce. Alliance Films will distribute in Canada, in the UK (via its Momentum Pictures subsidiary), and in Spain (via Aurum).
Octane, IM Global’s genre label, will launch international sales in Cannes.
“Jason has done a masterful job over the past several years of breaking new ground and creating huge commercial successes in the supernatural and horror genres,” said Bob Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company. “We are confident that Dark Skies will continue that success.”
The film is scheduled to go into production this summer with the logline currently being kept under wraps.”
While plot details are firmly under wraps, the guys over at B-D have managed to dig a little and pulled out some very early plot details.
The film is said to focus on “the parent’s 6-year-old boy who’s apparently been “marked” by an alien (living among us) for future abduction.”
