Amber Heard and Odette Yustman have signed on to star in And Soon the Darkness, a remake of the 1970 British thriller being co-produced and co-financed by Studio Canal, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Heard also is making her first foray into producer territory, acting as a co-producer on the film, which marks the feature directorial debut of commercials helmer Marcos Efron.
Set in Argentina, “Darkness” tells the story of two American girls on a bike-riding trip in a remote part of the country. When one of them goes missing, the other must find her before darkness falls and her worst fears are realized.
The original was set in France and tackled the idea of how vulnerable a stranger in a strange land can be.
The new “Darkness” will shoot in Argentina.
