David Slade Reaps A “Dark Harvest”

David Slade Reaps A Dark Harvest

David Slade (“Hard Candy,” “30 Days of Night”) has been set to direct horror tale “Dark Harvest” for New Regency which is based on Norman Partridge’s 2006 novel.

The story is set during Halloween of 1963 in a small Midwestern town where teenage boys eagerly square off with the butcher knife-wielding October Boy who is the prize in an annual rite of life and death.

One teen, Pete McCormick, knows that killing the October Boy is his one chance to escape a dead-end future, but by night’s end he will look into the saw-toothed face of horror – and discover the terrifying true secret of the October Boy.

Michael Gilio will pen the script while Matt Tolmach and David Manpearl are producing.
