Dennis Gansel Plans Grim Night

ON

Universal Pictures’ Grim Night appears to have found a director in We Are the Night helmer Dennis Gansel. The studio confirmed that the German talent is in negotiations to helm the project, which features a script by Brandon Bestenheider and Allen Bey.

Grim Night tells the story of one night out of the year in which everyone around the world locks themselves indoors and fights off “Grims,” creatures known to wipe out thousands of people for inexplicable reasons. The film focuses on one American family and their terrifying ordeal with these supernatural entities.

Bertino will produce with Marc Platt and Adrienne Biddle and you can check out the project’s original pitch trailer in the player below:
