Paul Solet (Grace) is set to direct Dark Summer for Preferred Film & TV, based off a screenplay by Mike Le (creator of the popular web series, "K-Town"). You can check out the teaser poster below!
Said to be a highly stylized modern ghost story, Dark Summer follows Daniel Williamson, a 17 year old on house arrest for the summer. With his mother away on business, a horrifying incident occurs, followed by an even more terrifying presence in the house.
"We are excited to be working with Paul and Mike on this twisted supernatural thriller," said producer Ross M. Dinerstein. "Paul's visceral visual style combined with Mike's complex characters will both terrify and entertain the audience."
Content’s Carmichael said, “Paul is such a quality filmmaker – and he really knows how to scare the living daylights out of an audience. We’re so excited to be working with him and our partners at Preferred on such a cool movie. We’re building a really first class business together, and 'Dark Summer' looks like yet another great franchise starter.”
Dark Summer is produced by PFT‘s Ross M. Dinerstein and executive produced by Content Film’s Jamie Carmichael. Content will handle international sales on the supernatural horror starting at Cannes. Content will share North American sales duties with Preferred Content’s Kevin Iwashina. Production is set to begin in fall 2013.
