Karl Urban (“Star Trek”) and Adriana Barraza (“Babel”) have been cast in the thriller remake “And Soon the Darkness”. They join hottie duo Amber Heard (“All The Boys Love Mandy Lane”) and Odette Yustman (“The Unborn”) in an update of the 1970 thriller, directed by first-timer Marcos Efron.
Abandon Pictures and StudioCanal are financing the project. Lizzie Friedman, Karen Lauder, Deborah Marcus and Chris Clark are producing. Flora Fernandez is executive producing, and Heard is co-producing.
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. The film is shooting on location in Argentina; the original was set in France.
