Paul W.S. Anderson told SCI FI Wire that he's producing the psychological thriller The Dark for Ginger Snaps director John Fawcett. "That's just wrapping up at the moment, and I’ll be involved in the post-production of that," Anderson said in an interview. "It's kind of a smaller picture with Sean Bean [The Lord of the Rings] and Maria Bello [Sin City], and it's really, really scary."
Anderson said that The Dark is a psychological thriller about a man and woman and their dead daughter. "But it's also got a very twisted ghost story worked into it," he said. "It's got elements of Don't Look Now in it, and that's the movie that I would relate it to the most. It's really f--king scary, but it's also got some very good character elements in there. Sean Bean and Maria Bello are just terrific actors. They look great together, and they feed off one another. I think there's a little bit of magic about the movie." The Dark, based on the novel by Simon Maginn, will be released in 2005.
