Evil Dead Director



Daniel Zovatto (above, left), of Larry Fessenden’s killer fish film Beneath and this year’s independent horror breakout It Follows has joined A Man in the Dark, the new thriller from Evil Dead 2013’s Fede Alvarez.

Written by Alvarez and writing partner Rodo Sayagues (Evil Dead 2013), A Man in the Dark concerns three young thieves who attempt to rob the home of a reclusive, blind millionaire. There, they find the victim is a violent and dangerous psychopath, who begins hunting them down.

Like Evil Dead, A Man in the Dark is produced by Ghosthouse’s Sam Raimi & Rob Tapert. TriStar will release. [Deadline]
