Dennis Gansel Has A “Grim Night”

German filmmaker Dennis Gansel (“We Are the Night,” “The Fourth State”) is in negotiations to direct the supernatural horror thriller “Grim Night” at Universal Pictures says Heat Vision.

Brandon Bestenheider and Allen Bey penned the spec script which sets up the premise that one night every year, strange creatures appear somewhere randomly on the planet and kill thousands – and no-one knows why.

The story centers on a family in small town America which gets attacked and has to defend themselves.
