Karl Urban Greets The “Darkness”

Karl Urban and Adriana Barraza (“Babel”) have been cast in a remake of the 1970 thriller “And Soon the Darkness” for Abandon Pictures and StudioCanal says The Hollywood Reporter.

The Argentina-set thriller follows two American girls on a bike trip in a remote part of the country. When one of them disappears, the other must find her before darkness falls and her worst fears are realized.

Amber Heard and Odette Yustman also star in the Marcos Efron-directed film which is shooting on location in Argentina; the original was set in France.

Lizzie Friedman, Karen Lauder, Deborah Marcus and Chris Clark are producing.
